60m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
(Light and Shade) A lovely climb, start at the foot of a right-trending grassy ramp.
1) N5+, 25m. Climb the ramp, then the steep fingery wall on the left and thin cracks, to a belay on the left below a roof.
2) N4+, 35m. Step left and climb the wall then the arete for 12m, until a step right can be made into a groove. Climb this to the chain. A more direct version of the upper section of this pitch is the exposed Solformørkelsen, N6-. © Rockfax

P1 is the crux but P2 is in a wild position. HVS 5a 4b. Much of P2 is shared with Applecake Arete. Beware jammed ropes on abseil!!

Lovely lovely climb in very British conditions

Big Lee 19/Sep/16 AltLd O/S

Led the second pitch. Climbed the first pitch twice after forgetting the guidebook. Both pitches were excellent. * A loose diamond shaped block immediately up and left of the first belay (around the corner) looked ready to topple. Needs extreme care.

Kemics 10/Jul/13 AltLd O/S

I had the lead for top pitch. Possibly one of the best i've ever climbed. Super exposed but easy enough so you can just run it out and enjoy. Just stunning. But seriously cold. Was shivering on belay and the abseil over the roof is a pretty wild way to end.
