64m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
Another exciting route taking an airy rising-traverse up the ramps and grooves. Poor when wet, which it usually is!
1) 4b, 40m. Start below the square overhang at 6m. Zig up to a grassy ledge on the left at 6m, then zag back rightwards up the steep wall to another grassy ledge. Zig left again into a short groove and keep heading left to the foot of a rightward-trending groove. A further zag up this leads to a grassy belay.
2) 4b, 28m. Head up rightwards to a grassy ledge and aim for the black groove 6m right of the belay. Climb straight up to the top and belay well back. © Rockfax

andyjirvin 1 May, 2011 Lead O/S Good fun, but not a classic. Nothing really stands out, though still worthwhile. Rift Wall was much more memorable. Some slightly dubious rock, occasionally sparse gear and confusing top out/ final belay (continue to top - set quite far back, or walk up the slippy grassy slope to what's probably the best belay position?).
