Start at a small corner, 15m left of the huge block sat under the roof. Unusually thuggy climbing.
1) 4c, 15m. Climb the corner to a ledge at the fault-line.
2) 5b, 20m. Climb the crack above then undercut the long roof rightwards to an exposed exit groove (thread). Finish up this.

The second pitch is mind blowing – go and do it!

great route. continuously good climbing all the way to the usual choss at the top! very pumpy second pitch - don't look down!

Second pitch certainly merits 2 stars, some pretty mean thrutching combined with 'character building' exposure makes it one to remember (if only it could be longer!).
