26m. Excellent and varied groove climbing with an almost gritstone-like mid-section. Climb poor rock until above the wide chert band. Move up and then left into a corner/groove and follow it to a steep finish that is overcome by a big reach. © ROCKFAX

Quality! The sting in the tail made it all the better.
Peter Dickinson - Lead RP - 29/Jun/14 with Leiko Miura

Top move was just in my head. Did it with the left sidepull. Hard 7b.
lewiz - Lead RP - 01/Jun/14

Not got the beta and/or power for the final move. Not using sidepull out to the left. Rest is very straightforward.

The final moves to the lower off took some working out. Went through 4 different methods. Eventually found a (fairly) static way. Third try on the third day lucky. Phew.
Ed Babs - Lead RP - 27/Apr/13 with Iain Moodie, Alex More, Mick Ward, Lee Mercer

Dogged but did all the moves apart from the last long reach.

Apparently you're su[pposed to undercut LET hand at the top... Hard IMO and uncharachteristic last move in terms of the rest of the route.
