80m, 3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
(The Puffin Club) A great (and very popular) classic with varied and sustained climbing up the striking right-facing corner and cracks above 'The Island'.
1) N6-, 35m. Climb an easy groove, then step right onto a tricky blunt arete. Move right again into a big right-facing corner which is climbed to a good ledge. The crack contains hidden delights.
2) N6, 35m. Follow the steep corner above, passing the bulge, and continue up a crack until it fades. Move right into another crack which leads to a ledge. Traverse 3m left and climb an easier crack to a large sloping ledge.
3) N5+, 20m. Move up and left to another ledge, then finish up the zig-zag cracks in the steep slab. Time for the photo! © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description

Naomi.P 8 Aug, 2018 AltLd O/S Lead with Poppy and Leo. I did the top pitch, Leo did p2 and Poppy did p1. Leo went straight up after the bulge and found it pretty hard for his first N6. Definitely the wrong line reading comments below mentioning E2! He then didn’t traverse and went straight on and did a direct version on second at the top. Great climbing on every pitch.

Bruise Apprentice 7 Aug, 2018 AltLd O/S Led P2 - this is longer than what Rockfax suggests and is closer to 40m. Pulling through the bulge is easy. Didn't have the lank to safely step across right after that, so went direct up the thin crack, which felt like E2 5c (placed my two smallest Totem Cams in decent placements). P3 is shorter than 20m.

James Oswald ?Jun, 2013 AltLd O/S Really ace, I lead P2. The hardest move is not pulling through the roof on the huge jugs it's the awkward move to get onto the ledge. The rest of the pitch is ace, including the traverse leftwards on huge jugs. Ace. Rozzy added a slightly harder (5b for her, 5a for me as taller) finish on P3. Great route
