2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
Start as for Villeta.
1) 25m. Move up to the small tree and head rightwards to join Schmutzig midway. Follow a line of good holds right to a belay on large perched block.
2) 4a, 20m. Gain a horizontal finger-crack on the slab above the belay. Move right to the edge and swing down via a hidden hold into the corner of Emerald Point. Cross the slab and gain the groove of Banana Boat and finish over its final overhang. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A really enjoyable and escapable girdle across the main slab. Start at the base of the descent gully as for Villeta.

1) Move up to follow the obvious traverse crack rightwards to the grassy crack and further following excellent jugs to belay on the obvious block ledge 15ft below the top.

2) Step up onto the slab above the belay to reach a horizontal finger crack moving right along this to the arĂȘte. A steep swing down right into the grove will prove easier than it looks after finding the hidden hold! Continue right across the slab at the same height to the next arĂȘte which is rounded to finish up a roof crack. (Cicerone)

Finished the day on this after trying to locate pinnacle wall and the quarry. Both looked a bit shite. This was good though…although 3 stars probably a bit generous.

Lovely route, though middle of first pitch made for interesting climbing as had to brush off a bit of dead (lichen maybe?) to gain any footholds or handholds. Second pitch was more thought provoking, and did create a little too much rope drag with my placements and not enough extension. All looked and made brain think was hard but when came to do the moves it was actually quite easy.

A good route where the crux may well be not where you think it might be... Lead, then reversed first pitch as second didn't follow. Abbed to belay and completed 2nd pitch.
