22m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
1) 14m. Climb the pocketed wall left then right into the long groove to the right of the big roof and follow this to a leftward exit to a big ledge and thread belays. Quite imposing but very mild.
2) 8m. Move left and squirm through the boulder-choked chimney to reach the top. © Rockfax

FA. Fred Pigott 1931.

βeta: This is a hard diff when wet and freezing, but fun. Two Pitches reduces the rope drag thing. Also gives many laughs when trying to bridge the comical chimney above, soz beks.

βeta: nice and easy, which was lucky as i had to down climb and remove some gear, as i got too much friction due to the winding nature of the route.
