50m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
Well travelled with the second pitch being particularly good. Start about 10m up the slope right of the edge of the buttress at a corner that heads up through vegetation.
1) 4a, 21m. Follow the corner to a ledge and continue up the cleanest rock on a rib to the right to a ledge and tree belay.
2) 4c, 28m. Head up to a spike of rock (thread) in a small corner and then move carefully up and leftwards to a wall and thin crack (peg). Climb the wall above to a ledge (peg) and then on up to a small overhang (peg). Traverse right to a couple of corners that lead to the Great Ledge and a belay at the abseil station. © Rockfax

βeta: Great Climb. P1 a bit dirty but with some nice climbing. P2 gives airy climbing in a great postion. All three Pegs are there and look good but there's not much else. Excellent abseil station right at the top of the route.
