43m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A charming route with continually interesting moves. Start just left of an arete as for Elevation.
1) 12m. Climb the open grooves for 4m then head slightly rightwards across short corners to a ledge and belay.
2) 4b, 23m. Take the short steep wall and crack above to a rest on the left at a ledge. Move up to an overlap and traverse right to clear it. Take the corner above and finish direct. Walk off to the left (looking out). © Rockfax
