46m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
The deep, twisting chimney is worthwhile and interesting. It is at the top end of the grade for those not used to 3D climbing.
1) 5, 12m. Enter the fissure steeply (polished) then continue up the groove and narrowing slab above to a choice of stances.
2) 4+, 28m. Continue until is possible to traverse out left onto the rib, finish up this. Alternatively, and a bit less exciting, continue up the slab as for Prats. © Rockfax

Great fun - the best route I've done on this crag. Worming up the chimney is a good laugh and the 3D climbing keeps on coming.

I lead the first pitch and couldn't find anything that looked like a convincing stance so traversed into the cave to use the anchor for Prats next door. Great fun first pitch although take care with side loose bolts. Second pitch a little showed in places and also good value.

Belay in first cave stance makes a more even two pitches. The chimney is the crux in terms of effort then back to balancing on a slab.

It's a bloody Chimney! 1st route of the day. Only did first pitch becuase of serious pain in big toe (too tight 5.10s used at indoor wall before visit to Spain .. switched to Boreal Crux boots before trip but damage already done)
