24m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A classic of considerable antiquity.
1) 18m. Climb the well-scratched chimney passing an overhang on the left (polished and awkward to protect) then continue rightwards past the holly to a good stance. The wide bit is avoidable to the right at a lower grade.
2) 6m. Move left then right to outflank the overhangs, or for something harder finish up the steep corner (VS 4c). © Rockfax

FA. Stanley Jeffcoat 1913.

βeta: On a damp morning at Easter, the very last move was very slippery indeed, although fortunately well-protected.

βeta: The first pitch is great, though a little stiff for VDiff in places (great gear makes up for it though). The second pitch up the left of the wall behind the belay ledge is not VDiff, at least Severe if not HS surely, though it is only little.

βeta: Not sure what could be added to the description, unless Jonathan meant the last (5a) section - does this go up the right or the left of the final wall? I suspect the answer is 'either'.

βeta: Pretty reasonable description considering the route. Tricky moves in the middle to get out of the wide chimney into the narrower upper section. Fun route
