12m. Climb the thin crack in a shallow corner (awkward wires) then layback up the easier continuation corner. The route stays a bit greasy long after the rain has stopped. © ROCKFAX

Managed the crux move but bottled the move on the corner, because I had poor gear, tried to climb down but could not find feet so fell manage to remove one of the nut placements completely. Nice
