80m, 2 pitches. pitch 1: (3) 50m Your choice of routes up the first 40/50 metres of the crag, any grade from tech 2/3 up. Belay on the sloping ledge, or from the ledge at the base of the groove.
pitch 2: (6) 30m Head up the groove past a tricky move to a ledge, then up the slab and excellent crack to the right for a technical finish! Can also finish out left, but its not as good.

βeta: You can walk right up to the very bottom of the first pitch propa’ P1 - Phil led, the initial left sloping ramp is steady, the top has 2 options, the main obvious left V groove or the easier cop out to the right of that - Took the left groove, a couple of tricky moves finally get you established in said groove. P2 - I led, easy short slab, then a few blocks to get stood in the base of the groove propa’, foot holds aren't abundant but enough, gear is good enough, higher up, the option to step left in to the broken grassy stepped gully line would be far from full value & drop the tech grade some what, we took the lovely right hand torquey crack a touch higher & to the right as per the original route I believe.
