36m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
Start just right of a rock nose right of Cataclysm.
1) 5a, 12m. Climb the wall into a small groove, keeping just right of the ivy. Continue easily to belay on the left inside the Cataclysm cave.
2) 5b, 28m. Make a very hard pull out of the right-hand side of the cave, then head up the tricky groove and the rib on its right. Finish up the wall to the right of Cataclysm's polished cracks. Move over left to finish. © Rockfax

The Reaper 16 May, 2018 Lead O/S I think we did Dun B 4 which comes directly out of the cave (tough) then up the neat groove to the right of Cataclysm. The rib to the right was very grassy low down. Good climbing though, with fiddly gear. Difficult to see where it went at the top, the wall immediately right of the top crack of Cataclysm looked bold and hard.

Luke90 9 May, 2017 Lead O/S Detoured up the first pitch of Cataclysm to start, the actual first pitch looked far too vegetated. Second pitch was really glorious. Almost deserves two stars, in my opinion, though it felt tough for HVS in places and it still required some detours around vegetation. Vicious pull through the roof of the cave!

kabutsu ??, 2013 - Didn't do this but left a blue wallnut and a quickdraw on an adjacent climb before realising it was the wrong route. Please return these to me if you can! I will be very grateful :D

Roy Goddard 24 Oct, 2010 AltLd O/S Lead first pitch to the cave, easy going with good anchor points pre drilled. Seconded the final pitche. Found it a bit hairy and slightly desperate near the right of Cataclysm's upper groove line. Enjoyable.
