3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
The dominating line, which follows the crack and chimney that splits the overhanging section of the crag from the vertical wall to the left. An acquired taste!
1) 16m. Ascend the grassy fault to a belay on a ledge.
2) 4b, 20m. Climb the chimney for 5m to a crack running out left across the wall. Follow this to good ledges.
3) 4a, 10m. Move up right to regain the corner and climb it steeply to a belay on blocks at the top. Escape right (looking in) and up from here. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Climb corner to chimney and belay from flake by small tree; move through chimney as it narrows to a crack and then traverse left via diagonal groove to belay ledge (VS 4b variation - avoid chimney by tackling left face to gain diagonal; move right along ledge 3m and then up for 5m. Follow crack to belay with nice bridging moves. Walk down to the right finding small cairns and steep but friendly descent gully
