41m, 3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
An interesting route tackling a great part of the left side of the cliff. Wait for a good dry-spell since it is dreadful when wet.
1) 30m. Start at a prominent boulder, 15m right of a chimney. Climb straight up to the ledge at 8m, then onto a rightward-leaning ramp. At the top of the ramp, trend slightly leftwards and then continue straight up to another ledge. Follow the final ramp-line rightwards to a belay in the corner.
2) 4a, 25m. Skirt the steep wall above via a slab on the right. Pull back left and tackle the crux to reach easier ground. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Eeeek!! Take snorkel and Marigold gloves. May dry out once every Preston guild but you HAVE been warned!!!!

Highly recommend that you take approach shoes to change into for all end of climbs on this crag.

sallygal29 21 May AltLd O/S Difficult route finding on the second pitch! I couldn't see immediately where the belay spot would be. Not much gear on this route. The fact that it runs with goop regularly fills in the cracks and makes it crispy underfoot when dry. Interesting route, but I'd only recommend it to someone I didn't like ha.

Mark Collins 19 Jun, 2015 Lead O/S Did this as a single pitch with a 70m rope. The drag was manageable due to the lack of gear and this also meant I had enough to protect without splitting the route into two. Sadly though, I forgot to extend my last runner which turned the rest of the experience into a sort of living hell, belaying with 3 pieces in a single crack in the slab above, as I thought wrongly that I'd run out of rope. Not bringing up approach shoes was also a mistake.

Falko 28 Mar, 2012 AltLd O/S Led P2. The selection of this route as 'first of the day' turned out to be a poor one. Pitches 2 and 3 were dripping wet but were clearly dry at the end of the day (the weather was warm and sunny at the end of March 2012). I put more gear in P2 than in either of the routes we subsequently climbed (both E1). Steve's lead of the (wet) final pitch was cool as a cornichon.
