60m, 2 pitches. The traversing and somewhat 'alpine' nature of this climb requires a competent party and some sense of adventure. If you have those attributes, get down there on a sunny Spring morning for a 9AM start and enjoy it at its best.
Safety advice: It is important for the 2nd to take care whilst completing P1, as the rock is a bit brittle and as belay provision is not the best.

Johnny Baker 6 Jul, 2010 AltLd O/S Climbed with Sam. Plenty of veg, dust and grubs. Peg belay in place with good ledge and good bush and wire back up. Pegs on second pitch - which offers some good climbing on clean rock. Good photo opportunity from belay watching leader finish over tottering blocks and shattered limestone. An utterly dire climb but nevertheless a great adventure when combined with Sacrosanct (abseil from teetering Ash tree to quarry floor)
