105m, 4 pitches.

Rockfax Description
HS. A worthwhile and popular outing up the right arete of the crag. Start below the arete.
1) 4, 25m. Climb across the short steep slab by a left slanting crack then move across right onto a slab. Up this and then climb short grooves to a small stance and thread belays.
2) 4+, 15m. Climb the wall and move right into grooves which lead to a good ledge. Swing right and climb the short wall onto a good ledge with thread belays.
3) 4+, 40m. Climb left of the belay then head up and right to a crack. Go up this then move right onto the arete. Climb direct then move left onto a good ledge and thread belays. Possible abseil descent from here.
4) 3, 20m. Climb the wall behind the belays and go direct to the top. A short scramble leads to the summit. © Rockfax

βeta: Brilliant, found the hardest moves to be the starting slab. Any comments about it being loose or overgrown: I think if you go left on pitch three I found some very hollow sounding blocks and retreated - if you go right you end up in a gully. Straight up the middle looks quite improbable at the grade but the good positive holds keep coming and there is some fixed gear in the form of some threads just out of sight of the belay. Overall a brilliant route and very worthwhile!

βeta: Did this last week and was also a bit dissapointed by it thought from the pictures it would be a lot more challenging. went to do big routes but had this as a half day but would have rather spent the time of the drive going to toix for better shortish multi pitches.

βeta: Pleasant enough - certainly not loose or overly bushy
