2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A reasonable route that has an energy-sapping first pitch. Start below the corner.
1) 4c, 20m. Ascend the corner, strenuously in places to a belay on the right.
2) 4a, 25m. Move up the wall to gain the right-trending ramp that leads to a slab. Follow this to the foot of a crack on the left. Climb the slab and crack up left to the top. © Rockfax

βeta: Finding the start to this was a mission. First attempt we arrived at kestrel crack - didnt go far enough left (looking at the crag). Thankfully brm spotted that this crack wasn't the right one. To get to Claptons, go down from kestrel and towards Eric's cafe for about 10-20 metres before heading up to some large boulders with one iron rung. The boulders are just to the right of the greenery heading up the face. (we roped up at this point as it is about Diff and would be easy to skid off in approach shoes). Ascend the iron rung and head up and left to reach the base of Claptons (25 metres ish). The route was good but strenuous.
