24m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A polished old favourite with a first pitch which is like climbing a bar of soap. The second has some fine positions.
1) 4b, 12m. Climb the corner to a ledge (optional belay).
2) 4c, 12m. Traverse right along the silica nodules. Either finish up the steep groove (more like HVS 5a), or keep pumping along to the Bitterfingers tree. © Rockfax

FA. D.Mellor, D.Johnson 1959.

βeta: A good route, worth it's stars. Pleasant back and footing on the first pitch and an exposed traverse on rather interesting rock. Altogether a worthy mission!

βeta: Much less tricky than I thought it was going to be. First pitch awkward. Second a joy. Good gear above the break (cams and hexes) Big grin climbing.

βeta: uch Big jugs on the travers, with the weirdest foot holds ever. Possibly one of the best VS's I've ever done

βeta: Some cunning gear placements can be found on the excellent traverse.

βeta: My friend didn't hold over the traverse and my 2nd took a bit of a swinger. Careful!
