55m.

Rockfax Description
The original route of the buttress trends left to right to find the easiest line. Steady climbing although the crucial mantelshelf is a bit of a stopper.
1) 10m. Trend right up slabby rock to a spike belay.
2) 4b, 10m. Move round right then climb the slot to a jammed block before making a hard mantelshelf out right. Belay in the recess just a little higher.
3) 14m. Climb easy rock then the chimney behind the tower of blocks and flakes to reach open ground and the top. © Rockfax

Horton 27 Aug, 2016 AltLd O/S Fun climb. Don't think we found the correct descent, though, which was pretty sketchy to say to least (almost triggered a few slate avalanches)

NCorbett 14 Apr, 2007 AltLd O/S Lead the first 2 pitches. 1st pitch very easy, crux at end of second pitch where you find yourself in a crack and then half to move around to right to climb over ledge into great belay point. Seconded 3rd pitch - John lead. Solo'd last pitch and continued scramble to top.
