51m, 2 pitches. The North Wall

Two pitches both around 25m up to the Great Ledge. The original top pitch is no longer available due to access considerations.

The first pitch is a 4b due to a difficult (for the grade) overhang but well protected by a peg.

The second pitch is a 4a, but has a bold section above 2 pegs for around 6m that is only protected by micro-wires.

Tree belay, and abseil station to the right on the Great Ledge - a pair of 50m ropes just reach the ground.

βeta: North Wall: following a change of ownership of the house above this section of crag, the previous arrangement to exit through it’s garden is not longer possible. Please do not top out on any North Wall routes - only abseil descent from below the top of the crag is allowed. For those who don't wan't to climb above the Great Ledge, an abseil descent can be made from one of the two bolted abseil stations above The Tap or Joe’s Route. Two further abseil stations have been established just below the top of North Wall (using rope slings and rings around trees) allowing the last pitch of the more popular routes to be climbed and an abseil descent to the Great Ledge be made.
