40m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
1) 4b, 14m. Take the first pitch of Golden Yardstick to the cave.
2) 4a, 26m. Step right and climb the groove passing to the right of the ivy to a zigzag crack. Up this and its continuation to an exit over on the left. A pleasant juggy pitch. © Rockfax

βeta: Not bad but try the second pitch of Golden Yardstick, its so much nicer, and no harder if you manage the initial move sideways onto the rib. If thats too scary/hard then this is OK.

Simon Caldwell 22 Sep, 2013 Lead I'd previously done the start (shared with Golden Yardstick) and the finish (shared with Lynx) but the rest was onsight! Had wondered if it was worth bothering with for so little new climbing, but glad I did. Rather than continue to the zig zag crack, I climbed onto the flake block and up from there, only joining Lynx at the wide crack. The start is fairly desperate, maybe HS 4c overall.
