4 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A tough route with a steep crux section.
1) 20m. Start beneath the slab capped by a shield-like flake. Climb direct to the flake.
2) 20m. Pull onto the wall and climb up and left to a steep crack which leads to a belay.
3) 4a, 12m. Move left to below the steep rib, blast up this and gain the ledge on the right.
4) 18m. Follow the corner above to the top. Belay well back. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Pitch 1 is a staightforward romp up the slab on big holds. Pitch 2 cuddles its way up the big flake then steps onto the wall and moves up to a belay below the overhang. Pitch 3 - either hand traverse (harder) or foot traverse (easier) leftwards for about 10m before climbing the unlikely looking rib in a photogenic position, savouring the exposure. Belay on the R.
DON'T scuttle round the corner ofthe overhang, avoiding the rib, and climb the easy corners - this isn't Slack whatever your leader pretends!
Pitch 4 is a short crack and a following chimney/crack to the top.

I ran P1 and P2 together - had a few m spare on a 50m rope. Jim led the superb moves up the exposed arete on P4. Duncan the final short corner on P4. Class route. Well worth it's grade for P3 alone.

Caused a minor complication by taking the finger crack in the centre of pitch 2 rather than the LH side, thus allowing Si to sneak in an extra traverse pitch, getting him nicely warmed up for the main traverse pitch and rib, which was great fun! A trifle damp in places which added greatly to the enjoyment...
