Rockfax Description
A good harder option that is best attempted in dry conditions.
1) 8m. The groove right of Harrow Buttress (vegetated) to a ledge and belay.
2) 4c, 18m. Take the steep crack above and move right and then up and back left to a ledge. Enter and climb the groove above to a small ledge and belay.
3) 4b, 10m. The delicate wall leads right and then direct to the top - bold. © Rockfax

Mick King 7 Jul AltLd O/S I did the 2 main pitches. Fairly good route. Most memorable is the slab pitch because of the lack of gear until near the top.

Muzza0710 7 Jul 2nd Led the first nothing pitch, backed of the 2nd pitch then slipped of the step across right. Lost confidence so just followed the rest.
