44m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A brilliant route up overhanging tufas which can be led in one mega 40m pitch from the ground.
1) 7c, 22m. The leaning tufas. The loss of a big flake below the first lower off has made this pitch harder. A direct start is fun.
2) 7a+, 22m. Continue up the corner in a spectacular situation. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A brilliant route up overhanging tufas which can be led in one mega 40m pitch from the ground.
1) 7b+, 22m. Follow the leaning tufas. The direct start is harder. A flake near the top has fallen making the crux slightly harder. Still a great pitch and well worth doing.
2) 7a+, 22m. Continue up the corner in a spectacular situation.

Dan Arkle u 26 Feb Lead RP Couldn't find the right body position so failed onsight. Redpointed shortly after. Very fun, thought 7c to os, but maybe 7b+ to redpoint with draws in and a knee pad.

dan gibson 10 Mar, 2019 Lead rpt Climbed this about ten years ago when it was 7b+, flashed it today in its 7c form. Probably a better route now with a cool crux sequence at the top.

John McKenna 7 Mar, 2019 Lead RP First 7c in a session. 3rd redpoint. Up the initial wall to the large ledge/niche. Take the groove to a good knee bar rest on the tufa. Up and out right on good holds then ascent the thickest tufa with slight difficulty. Find another kneebar rest before blasting through a powerful crux.

Rob Greenwood - UKClimbing u 7 Mar, 2019 Lead RP Gave it the big onsight, but made a catalogue of errors (including climbing five days on, without rest) - hence it was hardly a surprise. Great route, maybe even the best of the trip.
