35m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A fine and popular route with just a couple of hard moves which are well protected by fixed gear. The 1st pitch feels quite pushy.
1) 4c, 20m. Climb the shallow right-facing groove (polished) then trend left under the ivy on spaced jugs to reach a small exposed stance with good belays.
2) 5a, 15m. Passing the pothole involves an awkward and constricted traverse (threads) to reach a ledge. Step back to the left and finish up the hanging groove. An alternative finish out right ends up in an ugly shrubby gully and is best avoided. © Rockfax

βeta: Probably loses a star for the starting polish. In situ tat (pitch 2) is no more but this makes little difference as you can put as much gear in as you like. I have to say I've done harder '5b' moves !
