50m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
The most popular on the face. The climbing is never very hard but the situation is intimidating. It can be climbed in one pitch.
1) 5b, 25m. Climb the flake and step right in the open groove (as for Monster Mash). From the top of this pull out rightwards and climb the wall above to the small ledge belay.
2) 5c, 25m. Follow a diagonal line of cracks up and leftwards past a large thread. Easier ground leads to the grass ledges and the stake belays at the top. © Rockfax

βeta: Did this with in a single pitch with the incoming tide lapping at mt belayer's feet. One of the best routes I've done, left me buzzing for days!

βeta: Do it in a single pitch (50m ropes just make it to the stakes) - an excellent sustained expedition that makes a full value E2.

βeta: Second pitch is hard. CC guide has this at E3 which I wouldn't have argued with...
