57m, 4 pitches.

Rockfax Description
The large corner on the right of the buttress is a big route which is often dirty and mossy.
1) 4b, 12m. Climb the groove on the right side of a rib, left of the steep chimney. Belay on the ledge.
2) 4c, 14m. Move right until below the crack and climb it to a grass ledge.
3) 4c, 12m. Climb the groove until it is possible to step onto a pinnacle on the left.
4) 5a, 15m. Step off the pinnacle and move up cracks to a grass ledge on the left. The steep crack above leads to the top. It is possible to walk across the ledge to the top moves of Gormenghast if you have had too much by this point. © Rockfax

BTphonehome 1 Jul, 2018 Lead O/S Ridiculously hot - definitely an evening crag in this heat! Plenty of moss and lichen throughout but doesn't take anything away from a top route and a good, direct line with plenty of gear after the first 10m. Top crack felt really tough at the 4c quoted in FRCC 1988 guide! Well earned waterfall dip after. Brilliant day.
