Rockfax Description
A much-attempted climb that features a tough series of moves to leave the belay ledge at the start of the second pitch. Start below a steep, thin corner-crack above a rock-pool.
1) 4a, 13m. Move up to the steep corner-crack and climb it until easier moves up less steep cracks gain a large ledge and belay.
2) 4b, 9m. Make some bouldery moves up just left of the overhang to a ledge above it. Finish up cracks heading left to the top of the buttress. © Rockfax

rated HS in rockfax. very enjoyable and also scary climb. 1st pitch had a very nice overhanging section that is littered with jugs and is very enjoyable. 2nd pitch is scary and exposed but awesome. quite a puzzle just to get off the ground, ended up going right up to t ledge about head height. got some marginal pro on the crack at head height. and then tackled the steeply overhanging section up and left, that was propper scary stuff, strenuous and pumpy with Pro quite a distance away but pulled though the crux. bit of a scramble finish from there up.

Poco Loco 26/May/13 Lead O/S

Good fun, challenging moves at the grade! P1 has some steep (overhanging?) awkward moves, but on big holds. The first move on the second pitch is hard for 4b IMO, Lucy peeled off here. Overall great fun with some powerful moves. Oh, and harder than Civvy route.
