90m, 3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
One of the best routes around with superb climbing on the first two pitches. Fully bolted and best done on two 50m ropes.
1) 6c, 30m. Worth doing in its own right.
2) 7a, 20m. An immaculate sustained pitch.
3) 6a+, 40m. Straight on all the way to the top. © Rockfax

Wise 6 Jan Lead O/S It's a long way to the first bolt, luckily I had it pre-clipped. The climbing is lovely and the crux is well bolted. First pitch only which seems fair at 6c.

Flavio 29 Dec, 2016 Lead O/S P1 6c only. Tried P1 + P2 in a massive single pitch, fell off P2 after pulling a large block, got to the top clean after a rest. 7b for sure and very run-out.

Teappleby 8 Dec, 2016 AltLd dnf So close. Got within 7m of the top of the route before light and totally frayed nerves and finger ends won out. Roz did a great job leading the first pitch and by combined tactics (I led the first half and roz the second) we did the second pitch. But after a near 20m clip drop on the third we were spent. I'd agree the grade is probably 6c ( hard ), 7b ( hard ), 6c ( unbelievably badly bolted ). I did manage the second pitch clean on top rope but it is the hardest I have possibly ever tried on a pitch.
