54m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
Superb rock and moves that reward a confident approach. Climb to below staggered slim corners and follow these via some bold moves to an easing. Head leftwards to a groove (Hydra) and go up it for 2m before moving back right across the wall to a flat hold. Take the wall above to a crack/groove and follow this to a small overhang. Pull over and finish up a short wall and a belay. Abseil off or finish up Hydra. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Allegedly this is the best pitch at it's grade on the cliff. Given that there are only 2 E3's on the crag shouldn't detract.
1. 36m(5c) From the flake belay on Hydra climb up to some stepped grooves to a rest. Move diagonally left to the top of the Hydra groove. Go up about 2m and traverse right to a flat hold in the wall. Then go up via a groove and crack.
2. 18m(4b) Easy slab.

CRead 8 Sep Lead G/U Got confused and boxed trying to commit to the move over the grooves down low (crux!) so lowered and went again. Felt pretty airy even though you're close to good gear, though maybe I was just shitting myself. Eases off a lot after the next runner thankfully. A memorable experience and class climbing!

Tom.Priestley 4 Aug, 2018 Lead G/U GU yoyo 2nd go. Had a right mare on this. Stepped left at the crux rarther than go up and climbed up towards the red edge. Then when I reaslised how wrong I was I reversed it all. Then eventually went up the right way but had lost my head a bit and fell off trying to reverse back down as I didn't want to commit. Only just got it on the 2nd go but I was quite tired by then (probs took 2hrs on it in total). Crux moves protected but it keeps coming as you climb away from the gear. Brilliant route tho. Ab'd off.
