Atmospheric. A hard start is followed by easier but serious climbing in an impressive situation. 1) 5c, 7m. Start on the right of the ledge and just left of the arete. Attack the mean, leaning cracks to a small stance. 2) 5a, 26m. Climb the steep wall above, past a couple of pegs, to gain the large corner. Jam up this to the roof and then traverse wildly left before an escape into a chimney can be made. Follow the chimney to a steep grassy exit.

I'd go with E25c. First pitch is hard 5c.

It's got a sheep's skull at the bottom of it- it must be E2

A little dirty, and hard for E2 5c. Start is very hard, steep with poor foot holds. Secnd pitch has some suspest rock
Mike Adams - 30/Jun/03

Hard start (even in dry conditions) and hard to get gear after the first move or two until you are a fair way up with a ground fall potential. Hard for E2 let alone E1. Although the rock on 2nd pitch looks a bit dodgy it all stayed in place. All in all quite an experience.
