50m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
The steep gully is better than it appears, and stays dry in light rain. Start just to the right of The Fang below the deep corner.
1) 5a, 35m. Climb the burly chimney and pull around the overhang on its right. Continue over more bulges to a tree belay on the right. Most people abseil off at this point, as there is loose rock on the next pitch.
2) 4b, 12m. The short arete leads past some loose rock to another tree belay just below the top. Either scramble up the gully or abseil off this. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A climb not to be underestimated. The first pitch is a little cheeky in places and although the pro is good its not always where you want it. Second pitch is very short and easy. Overall an interesting and rewarding clmb!
