26m.

Rockfax Description
22m. A devious classic with a weird finish. Pull rightwards onto the wall from a recess then climb cracks to a small but good ledge below the upper face (belay recommended here). Pull up to the break then move left to the arete. Move up and left again then crawl through the horizontal slot to an exposed exit on the front face. Told you it was weird. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Very soft at the grade, but massively entertaining.

mrphilipoldham 27 Feb Lead O/S Crux move on crusty rock, off a good ledge and above your gear probably does enough to warrant the HVS. Good contrasting route and amusing finish (second belly traverse of the day!)

steveshaking 30 Jul, 2014 2nd Nobody saying this is more that HVS 5a? It felt harder to me seconding it. Certainly done easier E1s. Great line with fantastic exposure. Pete made us do the exposed step round rather then the belly traverse.....

pedrosanpb 30 Jul, 2014 Lead O/S Very soft at the grade? Hard moves above gear, I'd put it at a very solid HVS. Brilliant climb whatever the grade, with a fantastic and exposed finish (that you definitely don't want to crawl into; stay outside and enjoy the exposure)

uphillnow ??, 1975 - Had seconded the route (with J Stanger) first time round. Most recently 29/6/18 seconding Nick who did it in one pitch. The move from the ledge, unless you are tall, is awkward and has to be done before pro can be placed. Not a soft touch for the grade.
