22m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
1) 4a, 14m. Balance up the slab then follow the crack to a stance below the bulges. A left-hand start is a grade easier.
2) 8m. Move right and squirm up the groove to outflank the overhangs then finish direct up the arete or the face to its left. © Rockfax

FA. Bowden Black 1945.

βeta: Again this is Vdiff, slightly bold start, and the chipped runners are now very worn as offwidth as pointed out.

βeta: The chipped nut runner placement on the lower slab is already very worn and now almost useless. We'd previously overlooked the juggy right side of the upper arete: very worthwhile if you've climbed the route before.
