28m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A superb girdle, the best of several on the cliff.
1) 5b, 12m. From Sceptic swing along the break to Nectar. Continue to an awkward hanging-stance on Orang-outang.
2) 5c, 16m. Continue swinging to an awkward move up a diagonal overlap to the break. Finish up the hard roof crack. © Rockfax

seconded p.1 a touch pumpy on cold fingers. tried to lead p.2 but couldnt commit due to (being a massive pussy'ole) the aformentioned pump. it was too hard for me but should have tried harder.

led the first pitch clean, an excellent pitch in its own right, Only just mind, extreme pump, we should have quit while we ahead. Unfortunately... We both fell on the 2nd pitch, (well hard!) and finished to the left of the main roof in the dark by head torch, the less said about this bit the better!

Absolutely desperate. Only rated E2 when I did it. Did two E3s on the same day and found them a cruise by comparison. Did it clean but it required every ounce of determination I had. Sooo pumpy. Thought the second pitch was slightly easier than the first.
