66m, 3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
An exquisite climb that culminates in a breathtaking finale at the very top of the crag. Start just right of a low, overhung niche.
1) 4b, 22m. Take the line of left-trending flakes to a small corner groove and climb this to a ledge and good belay.
1a) Variation Start, HVS 5a. The pitch can be climbed direct, passing the overhung niche on its right.
2) 4a, 14m. On the right is a blank-looking slab, climb the slab rightwards on good small holds to a huge flake. Scramble behind it to a good ledge and belay on its opposite side.
3) 5a, 30m. Move up big ledges to where the rock steepens. Climb steep cracks heading for a black stain in an overlap above. Pull over the overlap, and then step left before climbing up slightly right to easier territory. Layback up the exposed, leaning cracks in the headwall to finish. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The peg on the crux of P3 is now broken off and missing - note there is good gear available next to it. Please do not replace - the agreed policy for West Penwith is no new fixed gear and let old gear rust in peace.

βeta: The peg at the crux on pitch 3 has gone. Looks like it was eroded long ago. Still protectable with some cams.
