40m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
1) 4a, 22m. Climb cracks, 3m right of the white groove, to an overhang. Step left and follow a groove to a stance in the 'eye'.
2) 3a, 18m. Follow cracks out rightwards past a blocky area to a final short wall. Up this to the trees. © Rockfax

FA. B.OConnel, Bruce Andrews, Steve Bowes, Tony Watts early 1960s 1962

βeta: Rockfax guide is probably wrong, it shows the P2 going up the LHS of the cave and then rightwards. This felt much harder than anything on P1, whereas it is meant to be the easier pitch. Going right of the cave felt much better.

Once at the base of the correct route, I set out on the lead only faff my self into a hot sweaty heap 15 foot up hanging on the gear! Davids attempt was better, gaining the overhang, but due to humidity and time an early pint beckoned! My first DNF .. ( Disapointing, but strangley motivating !)

SuperstarDJ 25 Jun, 2009 Lead dnf A tough introduction to the crag, being used to clean single pitch grit and the short clean routes at Harborough. Found the start eventually after gearing up at the base of the wrong route (sweating buckets in the humid trees too). Jamie led, but struggled to make much progress, getting to about 15 feet. He lowered off having placed three runners. I got about another 10 feet up having pulled his rope, clipped his runners and placed another couple. I wasn't sure where the route went, was getting tired and feeling really unsure, so downclimbed, removing the runners as I came. If it'd been a single pitch route and I knew where I was going I probably would have gone at it harder and got up. One for another day when I feel stronger and braver.

Wicked views, although first pitch is very polished, good footwork needed going round the roof! My gear came out around that point too, leaving me very run out! Composure required to find the decent footholds.
