48m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
One of the Peak's best limestone climbs and the classic of the crag. A superb central line, with a well-positioned crux. A pull on the peg of the crucial bulge lowers the grade to a solid VS.
1) 4b, 28m. From the ever-dry cave, climb the slabby right wall, right then left into the main groove, before easier climbing leads to threads (chains) under the huge overhangs.
2) 5a, 20m. Move out left and climb the short juggy rib to the bulges (several old pegs). Pull rapidly over to easier-angled ground in the groove above, continue to a belay in the big holly. © Rockfax

Led p1. Paul so nearly got it, two valiant attempts and two heroic lobs. I've climbed it before so we abseiled off so Paul can come back for a ground up assault next year. Kudos for trying it. Good excuse for some abseil practice.

Ran out of rope on the first pitch as the guidebook said 28m and we had a 60m halved, chris had to move with me for about 6-8m. 2nd pitch, I struggled with the crux after not reading the route properly.

minaturechris 31/Aug/16 AltLd O/S

Route length in the rock fax book is out. Climbed on a 60m half rope halved and needed to climb together to get to the belay of the 28m first pitch. Had 1m of rope left at the belay on the 20m second pitch. Nice route on nice rock but the approach and decent is a bit crappy.

3rd time lucky on crux move

Didn't find crux too hard, once sorted out gear, good rest, then fairly steady to top.

We did this (top pitch) as a great finale to the day - what a fantastic pitch - got to be one of the best limestone HVSs.
