Rockfax Description
A great combination of the first pitch of a VS called Oxo and the steep and thrilling top pitch of Bovine.
1) 4b, 30m. Start 10m left of the wall that touches the crag. Climb up a few metres and traverse right to a small ledge. Continue rightwards, passing a pinnacle to reach a small flat wall, pass this and gain the ledge on the right. Good belay.
2) 4c, 28m. This is what you came for. Steep, exposed climbing on holds the size of buckets. Climb the groove above the ledge for 2m, make a hard move right to huge holds and blast-off directly up the wall. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Given 3* in the latest guide, well worth it.

catty_9 11 May Lead O/S 1st pitch is lovely, probably more HS than VS. 2nd pitch I found really hard. It's committing moving around the corner but the holds are great. My issue was getting tired further up where it is still really sustained, no rests and I ended up running it out a lot as too tired to place any gear

Chimnastics 19 Oct, 2018 AltLd Another day in Wales, another day found wanting. When you get off every climb thinking it was harder and scarier than you expected, it's not the climb, it's you :( I led P1, pretty slowly and cautiously. Very compact rock at this crag, means gear isn't abundant. Easy enough, and I'd even agree with the 4b bit, for once. Matt led P2. A quite vicious move (for the grade) on dubious gear sets you up for a steep, relentless face climb. The holds are indeed great, but it's full on for VS. Glad to be on second (again!).

Also went up to the 'ramp' too early and scared myself half to death with a very teetery traverse. Julie came up the correct way and found it much easier. P2 - exciting swing right out of the groove (crux) then superb steep climbing up the wall via big flakes.
Superb climb in gloriously sunny autumn conditions - climbed P1 in t-shirt ! P1, quite poor gear. Also went up to the 'ramp' too early and scared myself half to death with a very teetery traverse.

Matthew Scott-Chalmers 1 Oct, 2011 AltLd Lead 1st pitch, really poor gear for a 4b managed to conceal myself to a narrow ledge/gangway which I had to gingerly crawl along with only 2 not so good placed cams protecting me from bottoming out!!! 2nd Pitch Rob lead (I'm glad) quality climbing, pumpy but good jugs! first bits got a bold swing out right with little for left foot. (leaders make sure you protect this move for your 2nd's)!!!
