8m. The steep slab is especially sketchy for the short. Side-runners drop the grade a notch or two. Loss of a hold may have made this a touch harder. © ROCKFAX

Where have all the holds gone! All very crimpey and slopey. Not sure if I can claim this one as a used the crack of Bitter for the move before the break.

Eases with height, A couple of long/balancy/hard moves lead to a committing move in the middle of the wall.

Hmmm, I might have soloed this more than 20 years ago, but can't remember, so put O/S. A bit windy, and a bit scruffy and lichenous on this day, which made it more challenging than it should have been. Could have brushed it first, but just set off
