52m, 3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
The highlight of this route is the eye-catching square-cut corner/groove high on the face above the slab.
1) 4a, 21m. Climb the narrow inset slab between the main slab and Grassy Gully and make a technical move out left onto the main slab. Continue up the slab and short wall and then move right to a large tree and belay.
2) 4b, 12m. Make some bold moves up and left into the corner/groove. Climb it and exit left at its top to a tree belay on the terrace, or better a nut belay a little higher. The groove can be gained directly at 4c.
3) 20m. Walk left 7m down the terrace and climb a slab to finish as for the final pitch of Wall End Climb. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Some fine climbing. Small narrow subsidiary slab lies just right of the Wall End slab.

As a single pitch. Interesting "fixed" gear to protect the move up onto the first slab. The groove is a suitable finale.

Much easier than guidebook would suggest, would give it an easy to mid severe rating. Quite vegetated, but decent rock.

Hadn't been on here so hadn't seen previous comments. Yes there is a nest. Although we did disturb them they did return later and there are no warning signs.

P2, bird nesting in tree on the P1 belay, so please don't climb this route for the next few months.
