61m, 3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A shy line that winds its way up some intimidating ground. The climbing is a touch runout and the finish exposed. Start by scrambling to a stance beneath a shallow groove, topped by an overhang.
1) 4b, 20m. Climb the groove to a peg under a small overhang on the left, then move up to the larger overhang and pull over. Move right to a stance in a sloping niche, peg and nut belays.
2) 4a, 15m. Step left and move up a shallow corner to an overhang and peg. Traverse leftwards below small overhangs to a sapling and then climb direct, passing a small tree on the right, to a short steep crack that is climbed to a larger tree and belay.
3) 4b, 26m. Traverse right to a grey-stained niche, pegs. Move right again to the end of the overhang and pull up and then back left above the overhangs. Climb flakes and then short walls to an easy slab which is followed to the top. © Rockfax

βeta: Worth it for the final pitch, the first two pithches are good fun as well.
