35m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A well-travelled line with some impressive climbing on the second pitch. The route climbs the vertical face overlooking the gully between Needle and Raven Buttress. Start at a belay on a ramp, above a 2m high mossy wall, beneath a small tree at 5m.
1) 4b, 10m. Move past the tree and take the short crack above to a slab that leads to a tree and belay.
2) 4a, 14m. From a flake, climb up left to the overhung line leading back rightwards to the top. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A Dewerstone classic with a fine, exposed, second pitch.
Start at the top of the platform, below a slab and crack.
1) 4b. Climb the wall, past a small tree, to a crack. Climb this crack, past a hard move, to reach a tree belay.
2) 4a. Move left, and climb up a short corner to the start of the overhangs.
Move up, and rightwards, beneath the overhangs. Continue this rising traverse, until a wide crack is reached. Climb this crack awkwardly to the top.

FA. 1960s 1965.
