265m, 9 pitches.

Rockfax Description
Satisfying and popular with a some fine slab and groove climbing. Protection is spaced and route finding is tricky until all of the overlaps have been passed. The route stays wet early in the season. Solo up to the start (a pair of converging grooves), otherwise pitch 1 is much longer than 60m.
1) N5, 60m. There are two narrow grooves at the start. From a block, traverse right then climb the right-hand groove to a small ledge and possible stance. Continue to the top of the same groove and belay on the left on a large grass ledge.
1a) N5, 60m. Combining the left-hand lower groove, and the right-hand upper groove gives a slightly easier variation.
2) N5+, 45m. Trend right up corners and flakes, avoiding any temptation to traverse too far right under the overlaps. Step out left to a thin flake on a smooth face, then continue up right and then back left to a comfortable stance in a right-slanting corner.
3) 20m. Walk right across a wide sloping ledge.
4) N5, 30m. Move up, traverse back left to join Famous Grouse, and follow this up the groove to a ledge and belay on the right.
5) N3, 25m. Climb easily rightwards up cracks in the slab to a stance on top of a big block.
6) N5+, 40m. Climb rightwards to a ledge then move left and climb the tricky crack, then the groove on the left, to another good ledge on the left below the final big groove. The groove left of the crack is an easier variation (N5) if needed.
7) N5+, 35m. Layback/jam the huge corner, a great pitch.
8) N4, 20m. Finish up the grassy corner on the left to the top. © Rockfax
