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

brian watson 30 Sep, 2018 AltLd O/S P1, got quite gripped whilst leading, rock has a dubious feel about it imo, easy climbing though. P2 seemed ok on 2nd, guess I'd calmed down a bit by then. It's a pretty out there situation especially the final traverse on P2.
