71m, 3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
Fun and intriguing climbing that gives a memorable outing.
Start at a ledge just to the left of a slim curving crack on the right side of the face.
1) 5a, 20m. Climb the wall just left of the crack, joining it at 4m. Follow the crack to ledges and a massive thread just above. Pull steeply through the bulge, thread, and continue past another thread to a body-size circular cave. Belay in the cave, and be sure to search out and sign the visitors' log book. Alternatively; from just below the massive thread, traverse up and rightwards to the base of a small corner and follow this to the lower of two horizontal breaks. Traverse the break left, past a peg, to the body-size circular cave.
2) 5a, 12m. Climb steeply out of the cave on the right, peg, and follow a short groove to easier ground and belay on a ledge.
3) 4b, 14m. Traverse left around the exposed arete into a corner (junction with Earl of Perth). Continue traversing left for 5m to a peg and climb up 5m to an abseil point at a large metal rock anchor. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Start from the end of a poor path at the lowest part of the buttress. Climb the wall to the left of the obvious curving crack or the crack itself, then move right and climb deep pockets past threads to a belay in a cave. Make steep moves out of the cave into a groove. Climb the groove to a peg belay (this can be backed up with a good nut in the wall above). Some people abseil from this point (although this belay is on 3 vintage and rusty pegs tied with some very faded 11mm rope - make your own decision). The final pitch (4c) traverses the obvious rising break to the abseil point above Suspense. Alternatively you can use an abseil point above Earl of Perth.

with Kirsten Donovon

P1 and P3. Took half an age getting the giant thread threaded and a couple of goes to get through the bulge on P1. Went woefully off route on P3 by going up too soon - was too focused on the daunting task of P1 when reading the guide book, lesson learned- Hardest move was coming out of the cave. see notes about a missing hold, certainly felt more like 5b and polish didn't help. Book in the cave needs a new plastic bag.

jsmcfarland 27/Aug/15 AltLd O/S

I linked pitches 1 and 2, Tim led p3 (the traverse). The 2 main pitches are well protected, with great moves. Found the route as a whole easy but incredibly pumpy, apart from the moves leaving the cave on the second pitch, the amount of polish makes this extremely hard, plus there is a very inobvious hidden 'hold'. Top end of 5a Absolutely brilliant route, linking first 2 pitches is required in my opinion! :)

Its still hard. I think this is the finest climb of the grade in the gorge. Take a REALLY big sling for the thread. Also, you can chain P1 and P2 together - saves faffing at the cave. The crux I think is the exit from the cave. This is how I did it... WARNING: PLOT SPOILER! From the cave, clip the peg up and right above your head, and then #3 cam in the upper of the two slots to your left. Step right to a small ledge using a left underpull on the L edge of the cave. Then reach round right (with long arms) to get an opposing right pull, using L side of cave as bridge. Get left hand on a reasonable flattish hold above the head and step up with the left foot onto the break at cave height thats now hidden from view. Then (and this is the key move), go with the right hand for a good vertical edge six inches above and right of the left hand. Bring the right foot up to oppose this pull. Six inches above the edge is an even better hold for the left hand, reach up to this and heave the left foot onto a magic foot hold just below the #3 cam. Simples! Hope this isn't too much information.
