30m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A worthwhile and enjoyable climb that is mostly well protected and on good holds. Start on the right-hand side of the big undercut buttress.
1) 4b, 15m. Climb the corner on the right and traverse left to gain the front of the buttress. Two cracks lead to the faultline and a good ledge (large nut belay).
2) 4a, 15m. Climb up for 5m then move right to climb a corner to finish. Finishing up just left of the corner is the cleanest rock. © Rockfax

βeta: Very good route. P1 is 3 stars, P2 is probably 1 star. Balancy well protected P1 crux. Bomber belay with hexes. P2 is easier with some suspect rock.

βeta: This was my first route at the Ruckle and I really enjoyed it. I led the first pitch, and was emitting some strange noises when I got cramp bridging the first move! The move off the belay was fairly tough too, we went slightly left onto the face (same as SLW?), not sure if that's correct.

βeta: Not a bad route. The climbing is technically easy and well protected. The second pitch was very loose and dusty....almost worth a little bag symbol...?
