61m, 3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A shy line that winds its way up some intimidating ground. The climbing is a touch runout and the finish exposed. Start by scrambling to a stance beneath a shallow groove, topped by an overhang.
1) 4b, 20m. Climb the groove to a peg under a small overhang on the left, then move up to the larger overhang and pull over. Move right to a stance in a sloping niche, peg and nut belays.
2) 4a, 15m. Step left and move up a shallow corner to an overhang and peg. Traverse leftwards below small overhangs to a sapling and then climb direct, passing a small tree on the right, to a short steep crack that is climbed to a larger tree and belay.
3) 4b, 26m. Traverse right to a grey-stained niche, pegs. Move right again to the end of the overhang and pull up and then back left above the overhangs. Climb flakes and then short walls to an easy slab which is followed to the top. © Rockfax

Steve Bartle 26 May AltLd O/S Great little route, not sure why I've not done it before. Annoyingly I belayed in the main Piton Route belay rather than the cave niche one, so I had inadvertently climbed part of P2 and we were then too high for the rest of P2. P1 is pretty bold, and where there's gear it's not great, but the climbing is steady. P3 is great and well protected. Overall really good

Dom Goodwin 23 May 2nd Repeated as a previous outing went a bit off route on P2. This is an excellent and varied route. Nice climbing with some great positions. Hard for the grade. Gear not great (typically Avon), but also the pitches feel technically slightly harder than suggested. Felt like I might fall on the hard move on P2, which is thin and polished. Maybe I didn’t get it quite right, but definitely didn’t feel 4b! At least, there are nearby pegs.

Samedmo111 15 May 2nd Got struck down with the fear and gave up any hope of leading pitch 2 (or 3 for that matter). Vinny was mad for it, so much so, on pitch 3 he ended up cutting the traverse short and pulling up through the overhangt via Central Slab HVS 5a... my heart sunk as i sat at the belay looking on in horror. Managed to finish without any drama and saw a couple of base jumpers leap of main wall!!!

VinnyW 15 May Lead rpt Revisited after missing the 3rd pitch last year due to darkness! Great climbing, lovely route. think we traversed too high at the start of 3rd pitch and ended up above the niche... this left an interesting exit upward from the overhang / crack which could have been following pitch 2 of Central slab, it certainly did not feel like 4b!!! anyway, great top pitch and worth a visit.

Makes more sense as 4 pitches I think and avoids rope drag. Could run P1&P2 together easily. Next to zero polish, great positions and positive holds abound.

Legs 13 Apr, 2017 AltLd First climb of the year. Pitch one was a touch run out. Pitch two (Steve's) was easy climbing on spare gear and short lived. The main event was pitch 3 which I got: fun traverse to start, interesting move over the overhang and then really fun climbing up the flakes. Think it's worth more than a star for the last pitch.

Ended up keeping the second a little too tight on the traverse... she had to take the roof direct it was that tight!! 2 star route (for the gorge)

Chris Sansum 11 Oct, 2009 AltLd O/S Scrambled up to a tree to start, then abbed off after it started drizzling and all of the rock became soaked. Scrambled back up after it calmed down a bit. Chris led P1 - quite damp groove to start. Rest of climb was in good condition. Nice route. Only a small amount of polish in one place on pitch 1. Gary led pitch 2 (placing virtually no runners!).
