30m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A Kinder classic - a fine climb, two varied and interesting pitches and of considerable historical interest.
1) 4b, 12m. Climb the bubbly ridge over a bulge (thread) to a stance on a good ledge.
2) 4c, 18m. Start around on the left of the ledge (move the belay?) and traverse right delicately onto the ridge. From here move right into a groove and climb this to the top. © Rockfax

FA. Siegfried Herford 1910.

βeta: Really good rock, with good moves on both pitches. Start of pitch 2 (to an old nest) is the overall crux, lovely moves up the top crack to finish 3 stars

βeta: A very good route with lots of jugs and good pro. Makes the walk up worthwhile.
