125m, 5 pitches.

Rockfax Description
1) 4c, 2) 5a, 3) 5c, 4) 5b, 5) 4b. The left-hand of two popular longer multi-pitch climbs, offering mostly easy climbing on good holds, though with some spaced bolts and loose rock.
Descent - Abseil back down. BE AWARE of teams below. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
This route has been there since 2000 (19years), so some bolts on the surface a little rusty, however, with the occasional nut placement to back up these spaced bolts it feels fine.
Care on the occasional loose rock whilst navigating route but otherwise a great little excursion. One 70m rope does all abseils down especially the penultimate one.

HelenB 19 Oct AltLd O/S Led pitches 2 & 4. Belay at top of pitch 4 may have been moved - pitch 4 was about 30m and pitch 5 15-20m. 70m rope only just long enough to reach belay/abseil at top of pitch 3 (from top), allowing 4 abseils.

chalkywoods 19 Apr AltLd O/S Lead pitches 1-3. Taught cat how to set up anchors on the handy ledge up pitch 3 with 2 sets of bolts. Cat lead pitch 4 and I lead 5, which seems to have just 1 bolt and a fair runout. The climbing was really enjoyable and varied, definitely recommend!

JimOakleyAdventures ?? - Great route # 26 mins walk in 2hr 25mins ascent 45 mins abs down using a 70m rope Sun on the base of crag from 1130hrs at this time of year A few bolts are looking a little rusty and spacing of 4m requires a bold approach or a little set of nuts protects those awkward moves. Nice views from top

humptydumpty 12 May, 2016 AltLd O/S P1,3,5. Run out, rusty bolts, a diagonal abseil. In contrast to the guide, I wouldn't recommend this as a first multipitch. Also easy to get mixed up with the next door route. Nice route though, and good view from the top.

col3 18 Sep, 2011 AltLd O/S Last route of the trip! Great route, we topped out for the first time which made it a perfect end to a fantastic holiday. Used the belays for Platon as we did not realise the abseil rings were meant to be our belays until we got back down. I led 2, got a bit confused and wandered around the cave for a while but I was glad I led it. I was going to lead 5 as well but didn't feel up to it. Felt like proper mountaineering! Paul got a bit burnt as the sun came round and he left his shirt at the bottom ;P
