72m, 4 pitches. Four pitches, a classic route for a great day out in the sunshine, bring a packed lunch for the amazing views.

Start at the right hand end of the wall below an obvious vertical break.

Dom Goodwin 8 Jul Lead O/S Poorly protected, but not especially hard. With care, the guidebook description mostly made sense, though P1 seems a little longer than described and no sign of a double bolt anchor at end of P3. Instead, used 3 obvious pegs. The route visits some nice positions, but the climbing isn’t particularly high quality, P3 in particular is scrappy.

abilegge 6 Apr 2nd O/S Climbing was nice, though very overgrown in places which made the route a little tricky to follow. We were hoping to link the two 18m pitches as we had 50m twin ropes with us, but the first pitch alone took up 45m of rope! Our error or the guidebook’s?! Topped out just in time to watch the sunset! UPDATE: On double-checking the book, it would appear that the climb is 72m and 4 pitches (!) and I merely forgot to turn the page to get the details of the final two pitches. Mystery solved!

ARiches 6 Apr Lead O/S Okay route (climbed in 2 long pitches with suitable rope drag).. needs more traffic to be good, lots of vegetation and mud scrambling (pitches 1,2 & 4 are mostly on rock). Last 2 pitches felt a little bold.

flatcap 20 Sep, 2008 AltLd O/S This was meant as a warmup, but it was a bad choice. Where there was rock, it was an easy climb. The rest was heavily vegetated. Horrible. As for protection, there was sod all. Given the diagonal route, twin ropes would be a good idea. I lead pitches 2 and 4. For fun, at the end, we turned it into a 3 pitch abseil. Convenient trees. Inconvenient thorny bushes.
