50m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A popular climb up the big groove with its solitary tree. Take care with some loose blocks on this pitch. At the top of the groove, traverse left over grass to belay on Lime Street Direct. Most abseil off here but there is a second pitch trending right up the wall to enter a more solid groove, up which it finishes (4b). © Rockfax
