33m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A great introduction into the art of roof thuggery with good gear.
1) 5b, 15m. Climb to the break in the roof and pull over it. Continue to the fault-line and step right to a belay ledge.
2) 4c, 18m. Follow a wall and groove to a roof. Go left then back right and climb a corner to the top. © Rockfax

βeta: The roof is very intimidating (even to second), commiting and strenuous although very safe. There is no backing down once commited - it felt very solid 5b to my weedy arms! Good fun.
