UKC

67m, 3 pitches. The first pitch is a fairly straightforward but sustained steep crack/groove leading to a fairly committing top section with some loose rock. The third pitch is magnificent; climb carefully up and across for 6 m to get the first gear. Some stiff, well protected pulls lead into the main groove which has some great moves and more than adequate gear up to the break. The top crack looks hard but commit with good jams and layaways and it soon eases.

βeta: Nesting birds on the top break (where this route meets Burning Giraffe), best avoided for now.

βeta: Good climb, which the guidebook should split into two separate climbs, as they are completely separate and very different from each other.
