69m, 3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
The central line of weakness in the suspended white and pink wall is brilliant. Start via a scramble to a good ledge directly below the wall, as for Pink Ginsane.
1) 5a, 30m. As for Pink Ginsane, then traverse right to a stance at a quarry spike and bolt at the top off Krapp's Last Tape.
2) 6a, 25m. Move left from the spike belay to a steep wall below a small overhang with two bolts in it. Climb with difficulty past the bolts and over the left end of the overhang to an easing and a peg at the base of a long groove. Climb the groove to a bolt and stretch past it to a better series of cracks that are climbed to a belay ledge and tree.
3) 5c, 14m. Move left along the break to below a right-slanting thin crack with a peg near its base. Climb past the peg and continue a short distance before better holds lead leftwards up the wall away from the crack to the top and a tree belay. © Rockfax

βeta: Removed the big loose block from the groove between the 2 pegs, (about the size of 2 shoe boxes, it just lifted off) and gave the Hawthorns near the ledge an annual trim.

βeta: Be very careful on P2 as there is a massive triangular block jug thing just past the crack (and difficulties) which flexes when you pull on it (loose), so don't be tempted to yard on it! Be careful
