40m, 3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
Enjoyable, clean climbing on a strong line make this an Avon favourite, though now well-glossed. Recently upgraded to better reflect the difficulty of the hard climbing. Start at the base of the arete.
1) 13m. Take the arete to a tree belay.
2) 13m. Continue up the groove and arete to a ledge.
3) 4a, 14m. The ledge above is very awkward and slippery to stand on! Thankfully the rest of the pitch to gain Lunchtime Ledge is far easier. © Rockfax
