15m.

Rockfax Description
Access the top of the boulder via the funnel-shaped crack on the left (a bit despo really) then climb a short wall and traverse out towards the arete. Finish back left up the fine flutes. Excellent. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
This is a flawed description, because what I believe is the standard route for most people is to go up the front of the boulder, starting from the left side and stepping right. Good balance climbing on lovely rock. Then as before, 'then climb a short wall' etc. The nasty crack behind the boulder is obviously masochistic and can't be as good. HS about right (though some people might prefer to call it 'Mild VS' :) )

Top route. Really nice exposure on the top section - you get much higher than the height you climbed due to the ground dropping away! Descended via counterbalance abseil.

The start is a right grunt, the rest is pleasant.

HS 4c in the guide, which seemed fair. Couldn't smear the start so thrutched instead.

HS 4c in the new guide and felt it in the freezing cold! (The down climb is HVD 4a too!) Still felt good quality and would probably be just about worth its 2 stars on a nicer day.
