9m. The second bolt is a tricky clip for shorties. A very thin, slabby number. © ROCKFAX

Great fun. The second clip is quite tricky if you're a bit shorter - I'm 5 foot 7, and it was just out of reach from the good foothold. The moves to get level with the second clip are actually really nice, so as long as you feel comfortable that you won't hit the ground I'd give it a go.
