88m, 4 pitches.

Rockfax Description
An amenable classic with solid belays and big ledges.
1) 22m. Follow the rib just right of the gully to gain a large ledge with blocks and spikes. If you like more gear, then tackle the slab just right of the rib.
2) 9m. Move right over blocks to a smooth open groove. Climb to a ledge.
3) 9m. Tackle the groove with the aid of the rib to gain a shelf and traverse left to another good ledge and belay.
4) 32m. Climb slabby rock to gain a chimney above. Follow the chimney to a slab (possible belay), then scramble up and left to easier ground. © Rockfax
