3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
An enormous, high quality main pitch that links some of the best bits of other nearby lines and adds some hard sections of its own. Start as for Hyena Cage.
1) 5b, 20m. As for Hyena Cage to its upper ledges. Move up right to a stance at pegs under the flared rib between the lines of Hyena Cage and the corner of The Jackal.
2) 6a, 50m. Ascend the flared rib on its left to a bolt and then on up the rib itself to another bolt. Move up to a foothold on the slab above (peg) and pull over the bulge (thread in place) to gain a corner and horizontal break. Bridge up the corner above the break and then launch out rightwards past overhangs to a crack and follow it a short distance to a large horizontal break. Make difficult moves over a bulge above the break to enter a groove and follow this to the terrace. Belay below the upper tier.
3) 4a, 12m. The wide corner crack left of an overhung ledge leads to the top. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
5b, 6a, 4a. A fantastic big route forcing a direct line up GO Wall taking in sections on the Jackal and Hyena Cage
P1 is getting a bit vegetated again so clean as you go. The arete is delicate and bold feeling (protected by 2 spaced 12mm bolts), but the rest is well protected. On the bulges if a hold feels poor just keep pulling they soon get better!
