220m, 7 pitches.

Rockfax Description
VS. The most popular route on this face by a margin. It has some shrubbery (and gulls), though the climbing higher up is worthwhile. There is a fair bit of fixed gear, so carry a light rack.
1) 4, 25m. Climb the awkward, narrow and slippery chimney in the right-hand side of the bay, then move right over a bulge to a good ledge on the right.
2) 3, 50m. Bush-bash up to the top of the buttress on the right.
3) 3, 20m. Climb the rib above, then traverse 8m left to a belay.
4) 5, 20m. Climb straight up the steep chimney to a ledge and continue to a stance on the top of the second buttress.
5) 4+, 25m. Step around the corner to the right, and climb up an easy, low-angled, broad ramp to the top of the buttress.
6) 4, 30m. Climb the slab slightly leftwards to a crack leading to the summit. Follow this in a fine position to a stance and belay about 15m up the crack system.
7) 4+, 30m. Follow the crack - awkward low down, but easing as height is gained. Where it becomes vegetated, pull out left onto the rib (bolt) and follow this, eventually moving left into another groove that leads to the cliff top and a belay on easy ground. © Rockfax

I climbed 1,3,5 and 7. Daz climbed 2,4 and 6. The ‘5’ pitch (pt 4) wasn’t that difficult. Pitch 6 felt harder. Last pitch seemed off route a little up the gulley.

RCI - Ex Spanrock. Lead P2,4&6. I would say take more than a light rack, a lot of gear needed. Disagree with the grading, some easier, some harder. Brilliant route and good belays!

The route inmproved as it progressed, as did the shrubbery! I could have done with a machete for the route finding on the second pitch! Not my most favourate route on the Penon, but a relatively easy way to the summit and a good option if looking to escape the sun.

Horribly grotty first pitch which I led cleanly to the first belay. I took ages, getting stuck wiht bag on my back, and not spotting the way out the chimney. We lost motivation after that (Joby decided not to follow), so we retreated.

Excellent route, good rock. Discripion in the guide was alittle out. Pitch 5 was about 20m and pitch 4 felt as though it was streigh up, climb directly above the bolt to the stance.
