3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A rare commodity on UK limestone, a classic low-grade route. The polish is testimony to the route's popularity but does not spoil the experience. Start beneath the disjointed crack-line.
1) 10m. Climb the wall and cracks to a good small ledge and sound nut belays.
2) 18m. Pull up from the belay and move through the bulge leftwards with difficulty. Head straight up to the crack and follow it to a belay on top of a pillar.
3) 12m. Easy climbing leads leftwards to below an old garden wall. Nip up this to finish. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A competent party would be advised to save faff and climb the route as a single pitch (easily done with 50+m rope[s]).

FA. I.Prowse 1923. Route name changed (offensive name).

βeta: To avoid confusion: this route was named "Wogs" by the first ascensionist (in 1923) and appears under that name in existing guide books (I assume Rockfax/UKC have changed the name here as it's a racial slur).
