116m, 3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
Three exacting long pitches giving tremendous climbing.
1) 5b, 40m. Climb easily up to the roof then gain the groove. Follow this to a ledge then climb the wall above and left to a large ledge.
2) 5b, 45m. Head up easily behind the belay and get stood on the pinnacle. Follow the continuation groove above to a ledge. A wall leads to another ledge.
3) 5b, 35m. Gain a left-slanting ledge above and traverse left to the second groove. Follow this to easier ground and the top. © Rockfax

Led P2 - sustained but well protected. Awkward rather than strenuous. Takes medium to large cams and medium to large nuts. This route is doable if you can jam, it would be very hard if you can't. P1 was dry but would be very awkward to start if damp. P3 is in a great situation high on the buttress. Despite what RockFax say, this cliff is less than an hour's walk from the road and benightment is easily avoided.

Led this route 3 times. Circa '94 (Duncan),'00 (Cedric)and '03 (Martyn). Have led all the pitches clean but struggled with the last pitch the last two times which in spite of originally being given a 5a grade seems the hardest to me. Never any trouble with the others.

The best route on this side of the Pass. A very hot day so hence the climb. Very sustained at the grade. Finished up the Overhanging Arete!

It was all dry. The first pitch buldge, which I would imagine would be a nightmare if damp, was fine. I climbed up, placed to nuts and climbed down, to rest and psyc up. As it happened the rep was bigger than the route and I powered through the bulge and above. Took the easier finish, the arete looks wild!

felt like a great adventure, a 16 and 17 year old hitching from Sheffield and spending a few days multi-pitching in the hills.

Found the first bit getting into the groove the hardest, after that fairly straightforward. John worried about giving me protection on both pitch 2 and 3 so we escaped up Green Caterpillar. I led the slab pitch because John reckoned I was good on crap rock and grass.
