2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
60m. A counter-diagonal to Pic ‘n' Mix. The first pitch is brilliant, but the second disappointing as it avoids the challenge of the final tower direct.
1) 30m. Start up The Head-hunter but at a huge flake-crack step left into the obvious groove in the arete. Climb this, then steeply up right across a leaning wall then into the obvious capped groove. Follow this over the overhang and up to the belay of Pic ‘n' Mix.
2) 30m. Go left and climb a wide crack, then pull delicately out left onto a smooth wall. Climb diagonally leftwards up across this into the final chimney of Grumbling Groove and follow this to the top. © Rockfax

Great climbing and steep! Freezing fingers didn't help leading P1.

Much harder than Pic 'n' Mix, But definitely not hard for VIII/9. Both pitches where awesome
