43m, 3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
The eye-catching rightward exit from the sea-level cave of the back wall is rarely attempted. The often-greasy first pitch has been the scene of a few epics. Start in the cave, which can be gained by an abseil or via an awkward traverse from Right Angle.

1) 5c, 16m. From the ledge, climb two steep, offset corners (aid, if at all damp) and pull out rightwards onto the open face to an awkward, hanging belay.
2) 5a, 17m. Climb the wall rightwards to the left-leaning corner/groove-line, and follow this to a protruding ledge and belay.
3) 10m. Finish up the corner. © Rockfax
