46m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A superb route which has a bold reputation but isn't as bad as the old bolt may suggest (if it is even still there).
1) 5c, 23m. Climb the groove past an assortment of pegs, and good wires, until the crack runs out (old bolts up and left). Step right to ledges and move up to hidden slots where good protection is available (large-ish cams). Either drop back down, step left and back up, or simply move left from the gear to gain the hanging groove (peg). Clip the extended peg above and make a hard pull into a hanging groove. Pull out left to a stance and belay on wires (on Delicatessen).
2) 5b, 23m. A fine pitch. Follow the cracks above and continue through the hard section of pitch 2 of Debauchery. Finish direct up a short groove. © Rockfax

βeta: Pitch 1 should come with a warning for the "shorter" climber as it is very hard (compared to other moves on the pitch) reaching the cam break (featuring fractured and wobbly blocks) if you can't reach through to it, and you would not want to drop this move as you're reliant on poor fixed gear at this point.

βeta: Didn't think it was hard for E3 gear seemed OK like Jez said use a friend. Loved this route despite the fact I was sandbagged into it - new to the crag got told it was original route - gulp

βeta: Nick, that gear has been poor since about 1980. In fact it is quite likely that it was pretty dodgy in 1975.
