290m, 6 pitches.

Rockfax Description
HVS. A good line up the long rounded pillar. Despite the grade, it should not be underestimated. It is a serious undertaking; the route finding is awkward and there is a fair amount of loose rock about. Take a full rack.
1) 4+, 40m. The centre of the rib, past two ledges, to another.
2) 5, 45m. Climb direct then trend left and back right to pegs. Move up and left again to a ledge.
3) 4, 40m. Climb right then left over a bulge. Continue upwards, keeping right of the gully, to a ledge on the arete.
4) 4+, 30m. Head up the vegetated groove, then press on up the slabs heading slightly left.
5) 4, 20m. Climb a slab then trend left to a belay.
6) 4, 40m. Move up rightwards to easier ground and the top.
Variation Finish
6a) 5, 25m. Climb the slab on the left to blocks and a belay.
7a) 5+, 50m. Follow the slab above past a hard move. © Rockfax

Mark Eddy ?Dec, 2013 AltLd O/S Loose first pitch, after that the climbing was good. Tricky route finding higher up and the descent not at all clear. Grade seemed about right, bottom end HVS and fairly sustained.

auld al 9 Jan, 2013 AltLd O/S Double rings at each belay, use these to ab the route as the walk up and round the descent gully is one heck of a slog! the variation finish is shown wrong on the topo - it doesn't go so far left

Andy Chubb 19 Apr, 2011 AltLd A couple of bolted belays (2 & 3) and a few mystery bolts crossing the route from the left and back. Overall a good route. For the descent, stay as close as reasonable to the edge as you move left up the slope towards the Cima. The start of the descent is more easily spotted once you've gone too high!
