20m.

Rockfax Description
Another excellent and popular trip with some airy climbing on the upper wall. Often finished further right, but it was originally done direct, which is a bit harder - 7a. © ROCKFAX

Stroppy - Lead rpt - 25/Jul/15 with Jake Young

found this nails, went direct, maybe not 7a but still nails to onsight, hard to see what the actual holds are.

For some reason thought it was 6B. Puppy and difficult to work out top moves. Hard clips also at top

Great moves, a superb mantel and pop to a jug stand out. Should have read the guide first, almost set off on 7a direct finish.
AsleepOnBelay - Lead - 20/Jun/14 with oxford john, Owen

greenclimb - Lead - 07/Jun/14

Very blind move to reach last bolt - fortunately the key hold was pointed out to me by a climber on an adjacent route. Probably would have failed had it not been for that. Seemed quite a bit harder than the route to the left: Private Prosecution.
stp - Lead β - 06/Jun/14 with Julie

Was clean to the penultimate clip then couldn't work out the next sequence. Wasn't pumped but had to lean back on the rope to work out what to do. Finished direct.

clmbr - Lead β - 21/Aug/12 with Guillermo

Got the top bolt clipped then fell off trying to go direct(7a version). Eventually admitted defeat 1m from the chain as I was knackered and wasn't sure where the normal finish goes.
Martin Haworth - Lead dnf - 18/Aug/12 with tom reed, John Brannock

Brannock - Lead dog - 18/Aug/12

A real finger-shredder of a move to the lower off (not particuarly fun, altho satifying when you make it). Otherwise really nice moves between adequate rests.

got to the last move and couldn't work out where to go - book says right but nothing out there. finally found something on the left but too knackered to complete. rest of the route is worth its 2 stars but beware the finish
