46m, 3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
Scrappy in parts but it has some good climbing. Start by scrambling up to the base of the V-groove.
1) 4a, 13m. Ascend the groove to a grass ledge on the right.
2) 4a, 18m. Move left across the groove to a rib left of the small corner capped by an overhang. Climb the rib and move back right above the roof and carry on up a crack to another grassy ledge.
3) 4b, 15m. Head up the corner and then the crack to arrive at another ledge. The short wall above leads to the top. © Rockfax

George_Surf 29 Dec, 2016 Lead O/S p1 looked greener than it felt. quite steady if you bridge it properly (could do with a bit of a brush), and pretty safe. p2 was a bit dirty reaching the rib but nice above (easy and bold). Practiced escaping the system anchors out of reach and abseil. p3 up the corner felt like the crux to me, good gear. altogether not too bad

The Ivanator 26 May, 2009 AltLd O/S I led p1 & p3. Slimy (after rain) and strenuous chimney on p1 definitely the crux, not p3 as the guidebook suggests. Belays at the top are scarce, using a braced body belay well back is probably safer than using the single dubious nut placement I found.
