46m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
The deep, twisting chimney is worthwhile and interesting. It is at the top end of the grade for those not used to 3D climbing.
1) 5, 12m. Enter the fissure steeply (polished) then continue up the groove and narrowing slab above to a choice of stances.
2) 4+, 28m. Continue until is possible to traverse out left onto the rib, finish up this. Alternatively, and a bit less exciting, continue up the slab as for Prats. © Rockfax

βeta: First pitch goes up much higher to the second cave (13 bolts), not the first cave as shown on topo.

βeta: all now newly bolted and plenty of them, though on the second pitch there didn't appear to be any on the leftwards rib finish

βeta: Great climb. I climb here regularly and there doesn't seem to be any mention of the excellent crag high on your right about halfway along the approach from the parking. There's about 12 routes of about 20mts all in the grades between 5+ and 6b. All newly bolted and very enjoyable. Also, the land owner who owns the parking area has ploughed it up to stop people parking there, so park carefully and considerately.

βeta: First bolt is thin, bent and rusted, maybe OK, but maybe not. Second is better, but not brilliant. Perhaps consider some trad gear to back them up.
