Rockfax Description
This one finds a reasonable line up through an impressively steep section of rock. Start below a pinnacle that marks the start of the ramp.
1) 5a, 30m. A demanding pitch. Climb up the pinnacle and step right onto a ledge. Climb the corner and continue up the slab to some spikes on the left at the top of the ramp. Move over to the left to belay below the steep final corner.
2) 5a, 25m. Tackle the corner via the crack to where you can make a blind reach rightwards into the base of the bottomless chimney, which leads more easily to the top. © Rockfax

Pete_Frost 01/Aug/15 AltLd O/S

Amazing first pitch, loved leading it. A bit damp and sandy today, but really nice climbing. It would be brilliant on a warm, dry afternoon. The move into the chimney on P2 is harder than anything else on the route and neither of us could find the "good holds", so we used rubbish ones instead. I'd be tempted to abseil off after P1 if I did this again.

i lead 1st pitch neil took second, 1st pitch deserves 3* in my opinion with some fantastic moves onto the slab off the groove. peg at 1st pitch belay in good condition. Beginning of second pitch has a very committing exposed move but after then the climbing is straight forward.
