52m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
1) 4+, 22m. Devious but excellent. Start by the old green name and make a long traverse left above the overhangs to the second bolt-line. A direct start is a lot harder (6a) and a bit unbalanced. Climb the face, steep and tricky to start, then step right to a belay on the edge of the cave. Twin bolts hidden in the shadows.
2) 3+, 18m. Climb the red groove then step out left - exposed - and finish up the slab above the chimney of Petreles. © Rockfax

Went a bit off piste as I hadn't worked out the belay was in the cave (in the topo it looks like it's over to the side) - luckily someone yelled to explain why the 4 had suddenly got rather harder!
