65m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A deservedly popular route following the left edge of the crag, with good gear and belays.
1) 4b, 37m. Climb to a ledge below a small overhang, move up right to a crack before you can make an exposed step left over the roof. Follow the crack to a second overlap and trend right below it to the large ledge. You can scramble off left from here if required.
2) 4a, 24m. Climb the wall above the belay via a flake directly. A bulge provides the crux before a scramble leads to a belay on a terrace. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Solo to foot of wall with no protection. Climb sustained crack to small roof, moving right and then stepping up. Belay at large flake. Move slightly left on steeper than expected ground to top
