35m. The second pitch has a serious feel to it.
1) 5a. Start at the top of the sloping platform, by a short wall. From the corner, climb up, and right, onto the wall. A hard pull, rightwards, leads onto the top of the slab. Move round the corner, on the obvious line, to a small vertical crack.
Follow this crack to the slab above. Peg and Rock belays.
2) 4c. Climb cracks, in the back wall, to reach the rounded arĂȘte. Boldly climb this arĂȘte, to reach a sloping slab, and then the top.

nickdonohue 22 Jun, 2016 Lead I'd done the hybrid Silken Thread / Imperialist before (which takes Imperalist's 2nd pitch). Doing it in it's entirety is really worthwhile with some good moves and neat climbing on the 1st pitch (and the 2nd pitch of course!).

clubmanpete 3 May, 2016 AltLd lead most of pitch one (ON ROUTE THIS TIME) Spent to long thinking I should be going left which looks like the right way. After putting maximum effort I had to come down where Geoff had a go and those fresh arms took him right ( The book dose say right on left wall "doh") and so it was completed. so fifty fifty lead in that id say. defo would like to do again soon as great training on steep stuff!
