63m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
An excellent rising traverse which is a great way to experience this face, giving good exposure at a reasonably friendly grade.
1) 5a, 42m. From the ledge of Quoin, climb diagonally rightwards to a small ledge. Traverse right to a spike, then move up a little before continuing right to stance in the groove of Wavelength.
2) 5b, 20m. Traverse the break rightwards to reach a flake up which you finish. © Rockfax

Led Pitch 1 which was a nice line but very dull climbing I thought. Then 2nd pitch wet so escaped up Wavelength. Done like this makes a pleasant HVS.

escaped up the groove above the belay at top of pitch one - running short on time.

Traverse is fantastic. Not sure about p2 - may have headed up too soon but alternative continuation seemed more than E1

with Mike D
MD 27/Aug/16 Lead O/S

Not completely sure we did the full traverse. Possibly escaped up another route through a series of overlaps

Marvellous. P1 a jugtastic traverse. P2 a fine finale with a big move to get what you hope to be a big hold .....

Did a variation, thinking I was heading to the visible cave and Preposterous tales. Reversed for gear, Pitch one mostly. Nice climbing though.

Nice route but the description gives it away. I found getting into the the niche the crux. Worth doing

A Crook 28/May/11 AltLd O/S

Nice route with an obvious line up the crag on razor sharp flakes and spikes. long quickdraws recomended on teh fisrt pitch. The second pitch devates from the natural line of the route but with a commiting traverse on flow stone holds it does not fail to dissapoint.
