75m, 3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A classic route with fantastic hexagonal columns on the final bold pitch.
1) 18m. Start as for Skylon, but traverse right from below the first overhang to a ramp, then continue right to a good ledge.
2) 20m. Climb a wide crack at the right-hand end of the ledge and ascend it to another ledge. Move rightwards 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: 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.
