205m, 7 pitches.

Rockfax Description
This is a scramble with a tricky initial pitch. Start left of Grooved Arete, and to the right of North Gully, below a polished corner.
1) 20m. Scurry up the corner to a break and traverse right to a block belay on the arete.
2) 30m. Head up and right behind the block and then back left into a groove directly above the stance. Move left onto a rib and head up following the left side of the rib to a grassy ledge.
3) 30m. The route becomes more indistinct here and you can climb up in a variety of places but generally trending up and left to a large terrace. Most people escape left along the terrace and into North Gully and make their way to the summit. © Rockfax

Descended via Llyn Caseg-fraith and Drws Nodded. No sign of anyone having repeated Steve's bold FA of Optical Illusion (E3 1 point of aid), although peg still in situ.

Lead all pitches. We have first tried to do it under pouring rain conditions on 6th of August. We had enough of it after reaching the terrace and retreated, without an epic, by scrambling into the little gully. On 13th there were passing showers, most of the route was very wet, but we did it this time.

hailtryfan 3 Nov, 2005 - My first multi pitch. It rained. It hailed. It snowed. My hands were cold lumps of flesh that seemed to belong to someone else. When we got to the top it was dark and we couldn't find our route off. Had to ab off into the darkness with the rope getting stuck multiple times. EPIC. Finally got off the mountain at about 9:30 and refuge at the pub.
