340m, 14 pitches.

Rockfax Description
Start in the corner at the far left-hand end of the wall.
1) 5a, 32m. Climb the corner for around 14m and then traverse right past ledges to a short wall that gains the stance at the top of Trinity's first pitch.
2) 5c, 20m. Move up the corner for a couple of moves and then traverse right to a small spike (back-rope). Move down rightwards to a ledge and belay on the edge of Hell's Groove.
3) 5b, 15m. Stride right to gain the huge corner and follow it to the stance at the top of Hell's Groove's second pitch.
4) 5b, 20m. Move right and down a ramp to gain a large flake that is climbed to its top (sling runner). Make a thin pull sideways and then up to a narrow ledge. Follow this right to a sloping stance (top of pitch 2 of Phoenix).
5) 5c, 15m. Traverse right and follow the jagged crack to its top. Move right and climb up to a belay on the arete. (The original line followed Phoenix on this section.)
6) 5a, 20m. Down climb for 8m before stepping right into the final corner of Ichabod (high runner in Ichabod to protect second). Traverse right to the stance on the sloping ledge at the end of Yellow Slab pitch 3. © Rockfax
