33m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
Well-travelled and protectable climbing, sustained but never too desperate. Start below a slim, right-facing corner in the smooth face below the main fault-line.
1) 5b, 16m. Pull up strenuously onto a ledge and move up a corner to an overhang. Climb another overhang and the slim corner to the fault-line and belay.
2) 5b, 22m. Step right and pull over the overhang into an open groove. Follow the groove to an overhang before moving right and climbing to the top. © Rockfax

FA. Richard Crewe, K.Winkworth 29.10.1967. Pitch 2 used to be protected by two pegs which were removed by a falling leader (who survived)..

βeta: i'm amazed that 7 out of 17 votes cast to date think this is more like 5c than 5b! i thought it was one of the easiest e2s i've ever done and whilst having sustained moves they were interspersed with good rests - the climbing was definitely no more than 5b and only that because of it's sustained and fairly steep nature, or was i just having a good day?! good route either way.

βeta: Great route. Thought the first pitch was the harder as it's more sustained. I loved the layback moves.
