4 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A tough route with a steep crux section.
1) 20m. Start beneath the slab capped by a shield-like flake. Climb direct to the flake.
2) 20m. Pull onto the wall and climb up and left to a steep crack which leads to a belay.
3) 4a, 12m. Move left to below the steep rib, blast up this and gain the ledge on the right.
4) 18m. Follow the corner above to the top. Belay well back. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Pitch 1 is a staightforward romp up the slab on big holds. Pitch 2 cuddles its way up the big flake then steps onto the wall and moves up to a belay below the overhang. Pitch 3 - either hand traverse (harder) or foot traverse (easier) leftwards for about 10m before climbing the unlikely looking rib in a photogenic position, savouring the exposure. Belay on the R.
DON'T scuttle round the corner ofthe overhang, avoiding the rib, and climb the easy corners - this isn't Slack whatever your leader pretends!
Pitch 4 is a short crack and a following chimney/crack to the top.

βeta: My first ever trad climb and/or multipitch! Great fun to be seconding, think leading would have been slightly terrifying, as there was very little protection
