30m. 1) 4a/b. Climb the slabby corner, passing a hanging flake, to a tree and flake belay.
2) 4a. Awkwardly climb the wide chimney to the top. They don’t teach you this on climbing walls...

first pitch is slightly awkward and harder. Second is lovely chimney struggle. Led P2

A really good climb, worth at least a star, despite a bit of vegetation in the first 2 metres (and a gorse bush at the start of 2nd pitch!). Some really nice moves throughout, including the 2nd pitch, which has breaks and edges to use - not 'brutal' (as per Nick White guide) at all.

Pitch 2. The cheeky chimney is great value! The further in you go, the more secure, but the less likely you are to make upward progress! All in approach shoes (one nearly came off on pitch 1).

In approach shoes. First pitch holds the crux, although the chimney gives different less elegant challenges. Tough for HS.

In one. Got spat out of the bottom of chimney a few times. If you do it wrong its horrible. Do it right its lovely! Nice [v hard for 4b] moves on P1, bridge!! Cracking route

that 1st pitch crux takes a bit of working out think ive done it differently each time (3).i love chimneys and this one is a lot easier than it looks.

P2 Mine. The first pitch was definatey not Hs 4a, 4b if not 4c depending where u go at the top. Good Chimney, Hard sever is no problem for me, but this looked impossible. Got stuck in and it was fine :)

Neither of us fancied the chimney so bailed from a rotten tree stump - I'n hindsight the chimney would've been safer!
