4 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A great climb that features superb wall climbing in its upper reaches and a tough (but well-protected) first pitch. Start at the base of a wall between two trees.
1) 4a, 12m. Starting on the right, move leftwards across the wall and around a rib to below a widening crack. Make a difficult move to enter the crack and follow it more easily to a ledge.
2) 20m. Follow the rib above to a good ledge. Move up the short wall and traverse left for 10m to a ledge and belay at a pinnacle.
3) 14m. Move right and up to flakes at 3m. Climb the wall above rightwards on positive holds to a belay at a well scratched crack.
4) 25m. Climb a small corner and wall to an overlap before stepping left and up onto the wall above. Finish slightly left up the wall and cracks in a fine position. © Rockfax

Great route but take care as easy to go off route on pitch 4.

βeta: Stack of loose blocks at the top of the route, no sensible place to move them away to.

βeta: Care needed on first 4 metres of 3rd pitch as some loose and wobbly holds but these get more secure as you progress up this pitch

βeta: IMHO this climb is better if you slightly extend the first ptich to end just before the traverse.
