4 pitches. The Central Pillar of Frenzy’ is an easily accessable 4 pitch E1/2 with an abseil descent which may leave you hungry for more. Out of the sun.

βeta: If you finish after pitch 5 (normal practice these days) be aware that the "alternative rappel route" recommended in the guidebooks is not as shown in either the old and new guides. Rap lengths and positions of anchors are inaccurate, and belay stations are not equipped with rings, so take plenty of leaver 'biners and don't be afraid to use them. Abseiling down the route itself would be an alternative, but you would piss off anyone still on the route, plus, the top pitch has a knot-eating crack, and the party we saw use this descent had to abandon their (stuck) ropes on the final abseil and come back the next day. Your choice!
