20m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A fine climb though most only do the first pitch. .
1) 4c, 10m. The centre of the attractive slab gives good climbing with escalating interest with final tricky moves (good runners in the horizontal break) to reach its crest.
2) 4c, 10m. Move right to the jamming crack in the upper wall and follow this until it widens awkwardly and possible to swing left and mantel into the base of the wide and easy finishing cleft.
A Direct Finish above the fist crack is a pumpy HVS 5a. © Rockfax

βeta: First pitch is great. Worthy of 3 stars in my opinion. Didn't do the fist crack for the second pitch, but did the crack to the right of it instead. Felt like a good continuation all the same, if only S 4b.

βeta: The last bit of bomber gear is just below your feet for the final crux move. Feels a bit insecure making the move but you aren't going to fall too far. Very nice first pitch.

βeta: Only did the first pitch (as the 2nd was out of the sun and below freezing) but that was worth 3 stars by itself. Deserves a fluttery heart symbol, the last (though bomber) protection as a long way below the final moves. Whoever voted for 4b must be either an E grade climber or 2m tall!

βeta: What a route, very contrasting pitches, a fine slab climb for the first pitch (definatly worthy of VS) and a strenuous second pitch, fun.
