90m, 4 pitches. Hopefully a helpful description:
Start at the base of a chimney 20m left of the Clanger, big spike for belay.
P1: 20m Traverse up right over a spike and then down, round and up to the base of the slab crack
P2: 20m Climb the right hand crack up to and through the roof. Traverse left along a ledge to belay tat.
P3: 20m climb the left crack/edge up to below the obvious overhanging chimney. The belay is good, but is really tight for space.
P4: 30m thrutch up the chimney and continue up steep but safe ground to some rope slung around a spike.
Either continue more easiy to the top, or abseil back down the route.
If in a rush, P1&2 could be combined, but it's best to set up at the base of P2 for taking photos. Combining P2&3 gives a great 40m pitch but the belay stance below the chimney isn't great. Suggest belay at top of P2 and combining P3&4.
