Rockfax Description
A popular climb with two contrasting pitches. Start on a large, flat ledge below a wide, rounded crack.
1) 5b, 17m. Climb the wide rounded crack to a horizontal crack in the right wall. Traverse the crack right to just past the arete and then move up the wall to a good ledge and belay.
2) 5c, 12m. Climb the thin and fingery corner above the ledge to the top. A good piece of climbing. © Rockfax

A large block above traverse crack on P1 appears to be missing (see photos), and crack is now more like a narrow ledge, however it is still climbable at the same grade.

Crap conditions but was second day running at the crag to do this route so had to have a go, rained just before and during Sue's P1 (the corner was horrid) and all v greasy on my pitch, couldn't depump on slick finger jugs near top and eventually rested one move from glory, bit disappointing but look forward to returning for the tick in crisper weather, loads of gear after first few meters of p2 is passed
