56m, 3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
Energetic lower moves lead the way to a superbly airy top pitch that requires careful route finding. Start just right of the awkward step-down in the path at a left-slanting hand-crack.
1) 4a, 8m. Nip up the crack to a large grassy ledge with a big flake on it.
2) 4a, 20m. Strenuously climb the flake and pull onto another ledge. More flakes lead up and rightwards before a step right gains a small foot-ledge and various belays at the top of the reddish rake and just beneath a long black vein and weakness that runs up leftward. This is just above the larger ledge of the Nameless belay at the top of its first pitch.
3) 4b, 28m. Move up above the black diagonal vein to a good runner and step leftwards with feet just above the vein to an easing in a scoop. Finish via much easier climbing along the diagonal break. © Rockfax

βeta: Belay after p2 seems to be a semi hanging stance just right of the small ledge & is quite uncomfortable

βeta: Sketchy second belay. First route back after a few months out, embarrassingly difficult feeling.
