40m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A stunning line. The first pitch is one of the finest corner lines in the area. Although much easier, the second pitch is on interesting ground. Start at the small waterworn ledge.

1) 5a, 23m. Climb the central corner, passing a thin section low down. At the top, traverse right on good handholds to a big ledge and good belay. Well-protected.
2) 4a, 20m. Move left to a short crack and climb up to easier ground. Move up again to a clump of grass on the left and step left above it. Finish up the 'dinosaur-like' spur of rock to a terrace. © Rockfax

βeta: Ravens nest at the top of the crack is huge, close too but not on the route and unoccupied this time. No cormomants nesting this time also.
