75m, 3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A classic route with fantastic hexagonal columns on pitch 3.
1) 18m. Climb to a ledge below a small overhang. Traverse right to a ramp. Continue right to a good ledge.
2) 20m. Climb a wide crack at the right-hand end of the ledge to another ledge. Move right for a few metres to gain a groove leading back left to a good ledge with a big spike belay. The direct version of this pitch, up a steep groove, is also possible at about the same grade.
3) 30m. From the right-hand end of the ledge, climb up onto a ledge below the hexagonal columns that form the slab. Make your way tentatively up the superb wobbly jug-infested wall until a broken corner leads up to a terrace. Belay well back. © Rockfax

βeta: Everything on the 3rd pitch wobbles. If it doesn't wobble your not shaking hard enough.

βeta: If you want play dodge the greenery on a slab this is the climb for you! Thouroughly wouldn't recommend. Its incredibly green throughout P2 and P3 and the P1 isn't particularly fun. This I think gets a sever grade in the CC book

βeta: Don\'t attempt this if you are new to leading. Pitch 1 is potentially a killer!

βeta: Questionable rock, far too much quartz for my taste, and such awful gear that I was bored and fed up by the end of the first pitch. Left the rest of the leading to Olly who no doubt enjoyed the 'wobbly jugs' and absence of gear a lot more than I would.
