2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A tough route, that is sustained and hard to read, with only just enough gear on the first pitch. Start in a shallow groove, just down and left of the large yellow scar.
1) 5a, 40m. Ascend the groove and move over the bulge with a sense of urgency to eventually reach better holds above with relief. Continue up the groove using the steeper wall on the right to reach a small ledge. Step left, following the groove, before moving right into another groove which leads up to a stance.
2) 4b, 20m. Step left and back into the groove-line and finish up the steep corner-crack to a ledge. Either belay here or carry on up the grass and rock slope. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A Tricky start leads to lovely steep corner climbing.

βeta: It is possible (and better) to do in one long pitch, and then abseil off the good boss at the top of the second pitch before the choss of the upper slopes. It's essential for the belayer to attach themselves at the bottom, as there was a double fatality on this route due to this not being done and the leader falling early on.
