4 pitches.

Rockfax Description
The vegetated bay has one decent route on its left-hand side. Start below the open groove in the centre of the bay.
1) 4c, 12m. Climb the left side of the groove to reach a ramp. Go up here to reach a tree belay in groove.
2) 5c, 15m. Move up the ramp onto a pedestal. Climb the crack above to an overlap, pull over into a diagonal groove and climb this to a ledge belay.
3) 5a, 12m. Move up and right, and then traverse across right into the corner.
4) 5c, 12m. Climb the corner with difficulty. © Rockfax

Led 5a traverse. Clean finish

Misha 10/Sep/16 AltLd O/S

Worth seeking out, despite the grotty approach pitch, which I scrambled up in approach shoes. Wasn't all bad as Phil spotted some chanterelles on it and went back afterwards to pick them. Phil did the tricky P2, which was made a bit more challenging due to some of the holds in the initial crack being wet. I linked in P3 and 4, which was fine but I was pretty conscious of the extra rope stretch/slack when going up the corner. This started with decent bridging before turning into a bit of 3D Tremadog weirdness, was glad to spot a good handhold out left and was very glad of the plentiful good gear - don't think I've laced anything as much for a while, wasn't keen on saying hello to the ledge below! Short and sharp, pretty tough for the grade but only E2 as the difficult bit is short lived and well protected, especially if you actually belay below P4.

Led first hard pitch. Sopping crack made for worrying few moments reaching the roof. Chanterelles on the first pitch!

Climb of contrasts - steep, then bold, then techy. Final groove is tricky! Done in two pitches.

shed_hed 23/May/16 AltLd O/S

Done in 2 pitches; led P3 and P4 linked together. P2 was nice with tricky moves bridging on to the roof. Enjoyed the bold but steady traverse on P3. Groove on P4 looks blank from afar but there are holds! Technical and safe groove climbing that I found quite tricky!
