74m, 5 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A great and popular climb up a series of ribs on the left-hand side of the buttress. Start at the base of a chimney that leads up to the base of Nea.
1) 4b, 15m. On the left wall are two parallel cracks. Climb them to a niche, then step into the right crack. Continue past a tree and belay on the ledge.
2) 4c, 12m. Step up the groove onto a sloping ledge and traverse right to the arete (good cams in break). Follow the arete up on small holds, and even smaller wires, to a large ledge and belay above the arete.
3) 4b, 18m. Move right across the ledge and climb up stepped slabby rock to below a prominent corner. Follow the corner until you are forced to make a step right to below a hanging groove. Follow the groove in the arete to the large sloping ledge. Either belay here, or continue up P4 to the top.
4) 4a, 15m. Shuffle right along the sloping ledge to a corner on the right, step back left then climb straight up to the large ledge (belay/abseil on a tree to the left). © Rockfax

Couldn't get to the rib on the second pitch due to wetness, decided the HS groove looked an easier option for P2. It was soaking. One of the most harrowing experiences of my life! Also did P4.

alexm198 06/Aug/13 AltLd O/S

Properly put the willies up us, this one. In hindsight, it was actually really nice, but the sopping wet second pitch was pretty spicy (!!!) and the 3rd pitch was rather bold.

Led P2 then abbed off 'in situ' slings/maillon. Rope got stuck (!) and was freed by Haydn who was abbing off from the top - fortunate for us! The final few cm of the pulled rope had flicked into a perfect fig-of-8 around itself beneath the maillon. Tremendous, delicate, bold climbing on P2 (love the photo by Jim Fogg - could have been my van in the layby).

P1 - 4b - 12m - my lead - awkward offwidth cracks! I was very glad for Jason's cams! P2 - 4c - 12m - Jason's lead - I was impressed - exposed nose climb on small holds with dodgey gear. P3 - 4b - 18m & P4 - 4a - 14m - my lead - I declined the belay stance at the end of P3 - I did not want to be alone on that scrap of rock - need to work on my belay-head! Placed an excellent nut and quickdraw on the easy ground at the top of P4 and, phased, did not clip it! Abseiled from the top of P4.

Andy P1 and 3, Me P2 and 4. Pitch 2 is superb climbing, up a really exposed rib, on small holds, with less than perfect protection. One of the few routes dry on the day, loved every minute. Ab with a 2x50m rope gets you to the ground

excellent route. Ran pitch 1 & 2 together; the 'rib' (arete) is lovely, exposed and delicate. Brought up Jon and Tony, coffee on the ledge enjoying the sun. then lead pitches 3, 4 and half of pitch 5 (as described in old Paul williams 'beris Guide) together as one, up to oak. Jon then scrambled to top and we walked off. superb.
