45m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
The big central groove provides a welcome relief from the sustained hard boldness around it.
1) 5b, 35m. Climb up into the groove and follow it to the break. Lean around the roof and reach a bucket. Heave around the lip and continue up the loose-looking (but solid) wall to a ledge.
2) 4c, 10m. Climb the crack/groove just right of the corner. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
(The bottom half was first climbed by R Crewe and K Winkworth on 24 May 1981.)

βeta: Wonderful E1 roof. Bouldery start, and good corner climbing to a great sit-down rest in the cool shade of the roof. The top section of pitch 1 seemed perfectly solid to me, but the second pitch is nasty due to dirt and sand from above (I did both pitches together without too much problem)

Paul Sagar 20 Apr Lead O/S An outrageous climb! Great bouldery start into sustained climbing up the groove/crack. Big rest at the roof: backed up the in-situ threads with a sling of my own, then headed on up. Cut loose to get high feet and reach the jugs - on a trad route! Amazingly, it really does go at E1 5b. Three stars all the way from me, absolutely brilliant.

tim newton 21 Aug, 2014 Lead O/S In one pitch. The top felt pretty dangerous, do other people go up the crack 2m right of the main obvious corner? Not recommended anyway. The last 6 metres are up some very dubious blocks and holds. I was really distributing my weight in full on Red Wall/Carn Gowla mode. A pretty big bit of rock I was standing on still fell off, fortunately my hands were decent and it didn't land near Rachel. Sketchy, that finish felt like E3,5a.
