40m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A superb bold and memorable climb taking the blank wall and soaring groove right of Ffoeg's Folly. Start right of the 'starfish' graffiti at the base of the open corner of Ffoeg's Folly.
1) 5b, 16m. Move right up an easy sloping ramp to its highest point. Make some fingery wall moves to easier ground and the first belay of Ffoeg's Folly. This is a bold pitch that is unprotected and many do the first pitch of Ffoeg's Folly instead.
2) 5c, 24m. Traverse right and climb up to reach a bolt on the left rib of the lower groove, move right and up to a small overhang. Enter the groove above with difficulty and climb boldly to a peg. Continue up the narrowing groove that curves right, before heading up a short corner on the left with a hard-to-spot peg at its top, then take the short slab above to a terrace and belay. Move down and right to the large fir tree and abseil off. © Rockfax
