14m. The wide crack in the corner is good practice for dirty American off-widths and great at wrecking clothes old or new. The lower crack is too wide and the upper chimney too narrow! © ROCKFAX

VS 4b - the lower crack is too wide, the upper crack is too narrow, which makes for an interesting 'squeeze' problem.
