30m.

Rockfax Description
A popular pitch that wanders up to, and past the left side of the prominent triple pointed overhang midway up the crag. Start at a narrow ledge directly below the triple pointed overhang. Move leftwards for 4m and then climb up to the left end of an 'eyebrow' overhang, large cams. Pull up its left side to a small ledge and then stride right above the overhang into a corner that is bridged to the left side of the triple pointed overhang, peg. Pull over the overhang and follow the slab to the base of a stepped white rib on the left. Follow the rib to a tree belay. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Significant rockfall above this route has wiped out the belay trees and left a very unstable/dangerous exit. [February 2023] Rockfall debris was cleared from above in March 2023, but as with any exit on this crag care is required.
