80m, 3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
Popular and often climbed but care is needed with the route finding. Start 4m left of the Central Rib belay at some short walls leading to a big grassy/vegetated ledge.
1) 15m. Scramble up ledges and at the big grassy/vegetated ledge go left and back right to a belay under a dark grey wall with two noticeable slanting borehole strikes in it.
2) 4a, 25m. Head up past the overhang above and on up to reach an iron spike. Move up past an overlap and then trend leftwards next to a shallow rib until a traverse left can be made to gain a small tree. From the tree take the steep flake and bulge to a good small stance.
3) 4a, 15m. Climb up to a borehole (thread) and make some steep moves up to a rib and easier ground. Climb up past a tree to a straightforward finish. © Rockfax

βeta: Great route! Led pitch 2. Some loose rock above roof at start of 2nd pitch. Quite run out in the middle of pitch 2, but easy slab climbing.
