40m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
Care needed with the rock in the first half. Start at crack in a short corner that forms the left-hand side of a small pinnacle leaning against the face. Climb the crack and wall above to an area of poorer rock. Move left and then back right to a small right-slanting corner. Pull up left to a steep groove and climb with difficulty to easier ground and the top. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Start at the lowest point of the crag at the detached flake.
(4c)Climb the left side of the flake and move up and slightly left. Traverse left for 3m and up to gain a narrow ramp line leading right to a ledge. (Poor protection and rock) - Alternatively and better climb pitch 1 of PS.
(5b)Move up and left into a corner. Make hard moves over the bulge and finish more easily up the groove.

Swotson 25 Jun, 2017 Lead dnf Really enjoyed this right up to the crux, even though it was bold and a bit loose in places. Just couldn't work out the crux:( Tried many times and eeked up a little further each time but couldn't work out the puzzle. Lowered off (so gear was OK) and Nic led. Seconded it OK, but trusted a very shallow 3 finger hold, which I wouldn't have done on lead. Maybe I should have gone for it as the gear was good. Not enough commitment/technique/strength???

Only fell because I got my leg stuck in my sling trying to down climb - wasn't really a fall as such. The crux is very committing and quite intimidating. First half of the route felt bold and loose too.
