50m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
The huge arete on the right-hand side of the lower wall is a good but slightly bold route. Start 3m to the left of the arete.
1) 5c, 23m. Move up to the base of a small corner and traverse right across the bottom of a grey slab to the arete. Ascend the arete to an overhang, peg. Make a perplexing move through the overhang via a short hanging corner and climb a little way above to a ledge and a belay on the arete.
2) 5c, 22m. Move right and climb a short crack and wall above the stance to a thread (thin sling needed). Move left to the arete and make delicate moves to a peg from where easier climbing up the arete finishes at the apex of the lower wall. © Rockfax
