250m, 9 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A cracking route with a selection of tricky pitches.
The best way to descend is to abseil the top two pitches and then follow the descent path back down to the foot of the crag.
1) 6a, 2) 6b+, 3) 5b. Follow the ledge system rightwards (handrail in place) to the bottom of the next pitch, beneath a large overhang. 4) 6c, 5) 6a, 6) 6a, 7) 6c, 8) 6c. There is a left-hand variant of the last two pitches, which is 6b+ then 6c. © Rockfax

βeta: 6c+ in Piola topo. P1 was very wet after an evening of rain, but still doable. Two holds on P4 also wet, but without issues. The fixed ropes on the walk between P3 and P4 are severely worn or gone in exposed places, so take care. Best to stay roped up.
