12m. The attractive central scoop is the best route on the wall and high in the grade. A difficult entry then some nice bridging moves above. Be aware of some loose rock near the top. © ROCKFAX

Clips left in for me. Made clipping the second bolt a lot less committing

First clip in, decided I wanted the second clip in too when I got there so clip sticked that and lowered off. Then climbed clean. Didn't really need the second one pre clipped after all.

Just before some absolute goons pulled down a load of rock on the 6a line on the right for no other reason than reckless climbing on poor rock at the top of the route. This route is pretty good but watch the slightly dodgy pillar at the top of the groove.
