105m, 4 pitches.

Rockfax Description
HS. A worthwhile and popular outing up the right arete of the crag. Start below the arete.
1) 4, 25m. Climb across the short steep slab by a left slanting crack then move across right onto a slab. Up this and then climb short grooves to a small stance and thread belays.
2) 4+, 15m. Climb the wall and move right into grooves which lead to a good ledge. Swing right and climb the short wall onto a good ledge with thread belays.
3) 4+, 40m. Climb left of the belay then head up and right to a crack. Go up this then move right onto the arete. Climb direct then move left onto a good ledge and thread belays. Possible abseil descent from here.
4) 3, 20m. Climb the wall behind the belays and go direct to the top. A short scramble leads to the summit. © Rockfax

βeta: Did this last week and was also a bit dissapointed by it thought from the pictures it would be a lot more challenging. went to do big routes but had this as a half day but would have rather spent the time of the drive going to toix for better shortish multi pitches.

mattwilk 14 Oct, 2012 AltLd O/S Possibly best route of the trip, better than Via Valencianos..? Rockfax pitch lengths are pretty sketchy and misleading. First pitch feels longer than described, second is tiny, third shorter than described. 2nd, 3rd and start of 4th pitch are all excellent. Exposed climbing but on brilliant holds and good rock. A proper multi-pitch experience.
