47m, 3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A perfectly-positioned middle pitch. The first stance at the start of the best climbing can be reached at high tide by traversing across and down from the lower part of Ash Can Gully (Sev). Start as for Corporal's Route.
1) 4b, 12m. Climb the thin crack and transfer to a corner on the left that leads to a ledge. Move up and then traverse rightwards to a ledge and belay next to an arete on the right.
2) 4c, 22m. Traverse right to double converging cracks and follow these to a good ledge. Take the crack on the left to the overhang and make a short, awkward traverse left beneath it before breaking through at a crack to gain a ledge. Climb the cracks and wall above to a belay.
3) 18m. From the right, take the easiest line to the top. © Rockfax
