Rockfax Description
A good and reasonably popular route that is fairly exposed in places. Start at the left-hand end of the 'Fifty Foot Wall'.
1) 4b, 20m. Climb on polished holds - unprotected - for 4m. Continue by first moving right and then left to the arete. Follow the arete to a tree belay.
2) 20m. Easy climbing on poor rock gains a belay on the left below the nose.
3) 4b, 20m. Gain the scoop on the left face of the nose and move awkwardly right to the arete. Go directly up this to the top.
A tough alternative is to climb the short groove and overhang to the right to join the arete. © Rockfax

Matt dislodged a pile of rocks down from the second pitch onto my belay. They smashed into the tree in front of me but I managed to hop onto a branch while maintaining a grip on the rope. One hit my wrist but the others flashed underneath me and disappeared down the first pitch. I advise extreme caution on this route. This film shows this route amongst others..

The last pitch is awesome. The way off has been cleared of gorse.

just about worth a star for first and third pitch but the middle pitch is appalling.
