40m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A great combination of pitches taking the left-hand of two parallel grooves in the centre of the walls - the visually striking first pitch being a good HVS in its own right. Start at the shallow open corner with a large 'starfish' shaped piece of graffiti on its right wall.
1) 5a, 16m. Forcefully climb the steep corner-crack to a ledge. Bolt belay.
2) 5c, 23m. Take the groove above the stance, which can sprout various plants in the summer, to where it steepens. Move up past a peg and then pull right to the arete. Step back left to the short blank corner, small wire, and climb this to a huge jug at its top, and a hard-to-spot ring peg on the right. Climb the short slab above to a terrace and belay. Move down and right to the large fir tree and abseil off. © Rockfax

Euan Todd 2 Sep, 2017 Lead O/S I led P2, had seconded P1 previously. Hardish moves to get out to the arete from the peg, but well protected there. The move back left higher up to the ledge felt a little scary, with some unconvincing microwires. In the end, the move was ok but I was very glad to get some gear in the upper groove. Cool layback on the top groove to the biggest jug in all of Avon (maybe an exaggeration).
