42m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
Two interesting pitches separated by some grassy scrambling. Start at the left arete of the large pinnacle.
1) 5a, 30m. Climb the arete and step around to the back and a ledge. Head up the face moving right to a ledge. Pull up over blocks to gain the terrace and scramble up to a belay below a corner.
2) 5a, 12m. Move up right across the corner to parallel cracks. Climb the left crack for 2m, then transfer to the right and follow this to the top. Either belay immediately and scramble to the descent path, or continue up the final long easy arete of Crescendo. © Rockfax
