58m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
An older classic that runs up the centre of the buttress in two pitches. The original red paint has almost gone.
1) 5+, 28m. Follow the faded red paint to the prominent hanging flake then a belay. The second clip is a bit run-out, care needed.
2) 5, 30m. Trend right, then left up corners to finish left of the bulges. The newer routes here rather spoil the route's integrity. © Rockfax
