32m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
1) 4b, 10m. As for Rose Bowl.
2) 5a, 20m. Step left and pull through a notch in the overhang to the left of a large hanging flake, onto the slab above. Continue up the face on good holds, trending slightly leftwards. A fine pitch with many (even 10 perhaps) surprising holds. © Rockfax

should have done it in one as rope drag would have been no issue. Top pitch is brilliant, huge holds appear every time you need them and a few reachy moves between. One tricky move but the gear is so good you dont really notice it. Worth every star.

Great climb but the scramble upto the start is fun! P1 is just grand but then P2 trumps it and the view down into the dale below once topped out is fantastic! The walk off is a good one as it's not clear and not that easy, we went left for a while then came back right and eventually descended down using the rope as a pull through hand line round various trees due to the scrabbly/slippy scree type surface and ended up at the foot of Campanile - a brilliant route and worth the stars in my eyes!

In one pitch, why would you do it any other way? Ignore the rockfax line at the top, it's completely wrong! it would be about E4 if you were to follow it, move rightwards into a groove.

Fantastic route, really peculiar holds, so many enormous incut jugs seperated by quite blank sections. Intial section very easy, then up the flake, feels steep but still easy. All the way up to the next steep section, then theres one 5a move into a big jug. Put my left foot quite far right (in relation to my body) stepped up and reached it easily. Lovely spot at the top, had a look around and abbed off the tree back down, took two abseils and ended up with a curious family watching us abb.
