2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
The final moves are goey and spectacular. Start as for Butterfly.
1) 4a, 12m. Butterfly pitch 1.
2) 5b, 12m. From the top of the pillar make a move left and follow the rib in its entirety. The final section above the break is committing but over quickly. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
4c,5b. Airy climbing up the prow with a crucial stretch to gain a great jug on the second pitch. Short lived but committing and fun.

βeta: Big TV sized block that you pull round off the ledge flexes a lot. Wouldn't put gear in it.

βeta: Good #1 wire, head-height on your right, once your hands are on the jug - makes the committing moves feel much more reasonable.
