29m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A popular climb with two contrasting pitches. Start on a large, flat ledge below a wide, rounded crack.
1) 5b, 17m. Climb the wide rounded crack to a horizontal crack in the right wall. Traverse the crack right to just past the arete and then move up the wall to a good ledge and belay.
2) 5c, 12m. Climb the thin and fingery corner above the ledge to the top. A good piece of climbing. © Rockfax

βeta: Rock scar was a lot bigger than in the cc guidebook photo, still good on the traverse though

βeta: Be aware that a substantial amount of rock seems to have fallen away from the horizontal break on first pitch, possibly making route slightly more difficult.

βeta: Significantly more rock fall now affecting P1 compared to photo on here. Might be possible as foot traverse? Tried to stick to original line - hand traverse now harder, i personally think about 5c, some good cam placements but care needed to avoid blocking hand holds. Poor foot holds which are quite spaced out. Pumpy on the arms and committing.
