60m, 2 pitches. One of the easier E2s at Fair Head, and with a comfortable belay ledge too. Given only ** in the guidebook but generally considered as good as any of the other big corners when clean.

StephenBleakley 3 Aug AltLd O/S Started this a bit later than we should have and I ended up leading the entire second pitch by head torch, made for a bit of a spooky time. P1 had an awkward committing move stepping off of the block, which Finn and I did in totally different ways. P2 was beautiful flowy climbing, although it was a bit green at the top.

olddave_ 22 Jun AltLd Nice and sustained, probably lower in the grade. First pitch varies from handjams to bridging and is a bit strenuous. Second pitch starts with face climbing and ends with a solid 10 metres or more of laybacking up a lichen covered wall. Pleasant. **
