26m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
1) 4a, 12m. Follow the easy corner to a large ledge.
2) 5a, 14m. A well-positioned and technically challenging pitch. Traverse delicately out leftwards and then make some technical moves up to the horizontal break. Finish up the superb fluted grooves in the headwall. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A great route, delicate traverse and a well protected puzzling crux sequence.

FA. Chris Eilbeck, Pete Lucas, Bill Lounds, Stew Wilson 1968. A well travelled route that was the first line to take on the challenge of the wall and discover the unusual flutings on its upper wall..

βeta: Better off doing first pitch to sluice or something similar then walking accross to do assagai. First pitch is pointless.

βeta: First pitch is just a scramble, but the second pitch is great. Very exposed, quite polished, not very pumpy, but the holds up the flutings are magnificent
