40m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A mix of the sustained and strenuous on a strong line makes this a route worth tracking down. Start right of a corner, below a large roof.
1) 5c, 20m. Move up the thin wall to a large hanging flake and pull right into a short corner. Go up to a horizontal break, and traverse rightwards again, until just beyond a vertical crack. Climb the wall on reasonable holds to the fault-line and belay.
2) 5b, 20m. Pull onto the wall above, follow it to a corner, and climb this to the top - the upper section of Strongbow. © Rockfax

βeta: Pleasantly surprising route - better gear, and easier and better moves than expected! 2 stars!

βeta: Al: I'm 5' 4.5" and didn't find reach a problem, how tall are you? Main problem geting pumped whilst trying to get gear in, awesome positions, top pitch deprives it of third star

βeta: This is a very worthwhile route, the first pitch is especially fine. Varied climbing and a strong line.
