1) 10m. Climb the easy-angled rib in the back of the wide groove to a series of ledges then step left to a good stance.<br/>2) 10m. The well-protected crack in the centre of the west-facing continuation wall gives a fine second pitch and is especially neat.

We didn't bother with a rope for the first pitch - more of a scramble than a climb, but worth it as the second pitch is good climbing.

If you thought the 1st pitch was a scramble you were probably in the groove to the left of the rib rather than on the rib itself, which is excellent but insecure friction climbing.

A pleasant second pitch worth a star but the first pitch is too escapable to make the whole thing worth 2 stars.
Jonathan T - 13/May/05

First pitch felt nervy to me, though easy to escape from if needed. Second pitch was really enjoyable and worth 2 stars on its own.
