42m, 2 pitches. 1)24m 5a. Climb the vegetated flake crack to a grovel up a overhanging filthy groove to a good ledge below an obvious horror offwidth crack!
2)18m 5c. Climb the horrific crack, apparently laybacking is the way forward, but getting in the crack and 'thrutching' is THE correct and classic *** way to do it!.Times change 1956 on the FA the first pitch was fairly clean of vegetation.

Paul Ross and Peter Lockey 29/May/1956.
