38m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A fine, sustained outing with good positions which is now climbed in a single pitch. Start 5m right of Heidelberg Creature. Climb steeply up parallel cracks to pass a blocky bulge on the left. Follow the hanging corner above past a large overhang at the fault-line and on up to a small overhang. Step left around an arete and follow a thin crack and shallow groove to the top. © Rockfax

βeta: If you own a set of micro cams to protect the headwall it's high E1, if you don't it's maybe worth E2. Certainly no harder than Elysium.

βeta: I think this is one of the easier E2's at Swanage. It works well as a single pitch.

βeta: Wow! my first route at swanage. Its so steep but yet you don't get pumped, theres jams and bridging rests all over the place so the massive roof on the first pitch is easy. We belayed below the first small roof so didn't see the proper belay til we climbed pitch two and saw the comedy rotting pegs. Top pitch is much harder than the first, technical wall climbing and finger locks and does feel quite sustained hence E2.

βeta: Best enjoyed in one pitch (50 m ropes) if you are careful to avoid rope drag
