50m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
An impressive route covering some extremely serious ground. 1) 6b, 30m. Start at the arete as for Jenny Wren and climb to an old peg. Move left onto the face and climb with great care, past some pegs, to the small ramp of Jenny Wren. Move up the crack above to a thread at a small roof. Pull over the roof and up right (hard) to easier ground. Traverse right a long way to the Rebel cave belay. 2) 6a, 15m. Traverse back left to beneath a shallow groove. Move over the roof and climb the groove to the top. © Rockfax
