35m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
Atmospheric. A hard start is followed by easier but serious climbing in an impressive situation. 1) 5c, 7m. Start on the right of the ledge and just left of the arete. Attack the mean, leaning cracks to a small stance. 2) 5a, 26m. Climb the steep wall above, past a couple of pegs, to gain the large corner. Jam up this to the roof and then traverse wildly left before an escape into a chimney can be made. Follow the chimney to a steep grassy exit. © Rockfax
