60m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
One of the UK's milestone routes for any aspiring hard climber which traces a majestic line up this stunning wall with initially technical climbing giving way to easier, but bolder moves higher up. Start on a grassy terrace below the high groove of Daurigol and to the right of some thin cracks that lead up the left-hand side of the Great Wall.
1) 6a, 25m. Climb up to a small overlap below a line of cracks. Climb these up and rightwards with difficulty until a reach gains a crack. Pull up into a depression to belay.
2) 5c, 35m. Climb up the crack and then a corner above (becoming thin on gear) to a left-facing groove and overlap. A memorable long move to a good hold leads quickly to a long ledge. Traverse right along this and back left to easier ground. © Rockfax
