4 pitches.

Rockfax Description
120m. Some beautiful slab climbing. The route was partially re-bolted in 2010 and the first pitch is now well equipped. The higher pitches may feel slightly bold but the climbing is fairly amenable.
1) 5c, 2) 5b. The bolting is slightly strange on the overlaps of this pitch and at times you need to commit to the move in order to see the next bolt. They are there if you go for it! At the top of the pitch are two belays - go to the higher one.
3) 5a, 4) 5c.
Descent - Abseil back down the route but keep a watch for an independent anchor which makes the final abseil more direct. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description

βeta: there is no belay between pitches 3 and 4 as per the rockfax topo, requiring them to be run together in about 55m (or belay off of 1 bolt and some nuts). pitch 4 is scrappy and unstable and requires pulling on exposed shrubbery for the final move to the chains. above this there is another pitch of easier looking climbing (well bolted) which would get you to the top of the crag and a walk off

βeta: P4 seems to have new bolts added, the crux is now nicely protected. There's a 5th pitch added that looks very easy. We didn't climb it, so not sure if it's complete and equipped for abseil.
