32m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
1) 5a, 18m. Climb straight up the pocketed wall to the hanging lump and pull right past this before sprinting up a short groove and the wall to a good stance.
2) 5b, 14m. The reddish groove behind the stance leads to a good flat hold. Use this to climb the wall rightwards to the arete and finish up this in a good position. © Rockfax

Alkis 13 Aug, 2016 Lead O/S Started the first pitch about a metre further left than I should have which was harder than normal. The section from the bulge to the belay is horrifically overgrown, had to garden a fair bit just to make the crux, which felt more like 5c. I traversed right too late, just under the overhang which was rather bold. I honestly thought there isn't much of a line on the route at all. Abseiled off the tree in the dark, the top is a jungle.

Mike_Hayes 11 Jun, 2015 Lead O/S Probably hard 5b both pitches. Knocking on E2. crap in current state. We rapped belayed / off tree at top to avoid jungle bash.

masa-alpin 1 Aug, 2013 Lead O/S Lead it in 1 pitch. Harder, dirtier, and scarier (dud to loose-looking rocks) than M1 in High Tor. We found P1 was harder (5c). E2 5c,5b/c? The "arete" at the top was not obvious and the top-out was a horrible jungle - it would have been more sensible to ab off a tree before the final arete. Not worth a star.
