40m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
The best of the routes on this face starting from the tidal ledge below the main Crickmail face.
1) 5b, 20m. Climb a wall then step left to a crack on the arete. Take a line up leftwards then step back right into a groove which leads to the break. Step right to belay on the terrace.
2) 5c, 20m. Climb diagonally leftwards to a ledge. Move back right to a break then climb up a crack, past a small overlap, and on to the top. © Rockfax

βeta: Pitch one of this felt tricky and committing traversing out to the initial arĂȘte, with low handholds a bit too close to the line of perfect footholds. And the crack at the end of the traverse is a bit discontinuous and ill-defined compared to what I was expecting. Was I just climbing badly, or has this section of P1 been affected by rockfall? Certainly felt E3 to me, and a much harder lead than P2...
