125m, 4 pitches.

Rockfax Description
VS. Some pleasant climbing with a spectacular finish, and quite popular. Start below a steep slab at the left edge of the wall.
1) 4, 45m. Climb to and up a steep groove, step into the groove on the right, and up to large block (belay possible). Climb the wall trending right then direct to a ledge, chain belay.
2) 3, 15m. Traverse easily leftwards along ledges to reach a large bay at the foot of an arete.
3) 4, 45m. Climb the arete into a slanting groove. Go up this and move right at its top to a ledge (belay possible). Move left and climb the slab rightwards stepping left at the top onto a good ledge and trees.
4) 4+, 20m. From the left end of the ledge climb direct to the steep wall above. Follow the exposed leftwards-slanting fault-line which leads to the top.
Descent - Abseil back down the line. © Rockfax

Led all pitches. Pretty punchy ending although ok ish protected if you have a 00 cam. Route finding is a bit tricking on pitch 1 - may have gone off piste a bit - did find a ring belay tho.

James led most of it, I did P2. We didn't feel that pitches 2 and 3 added anything to the route and that following that section of Scorpion to the same stance would have been better.

lead pitch 1 and 4. second half of pitch 1 has a lot of loose rock. Pitch 4 is fantastic and quite exposed. All trad gear apart from belay stances are bolted.

MP - Fully trad less a few stances. Vegetated and shares a lot of the route with Scorpion but a couple of nice pitches. Crux at the top of the route is v difficult to protect and very exposed (dangerous)! Joe abseiled into a tree.

Worth it for the final pitch, but first pitch is pretty nice as well. Shame about the scrappy mid-section.
