14m. The direct over the imposing roof features the hardest mantelshelf in the world - a free hanging one-armed flip, with no footholds!! Good holds lead to the lip but above there is precious little with which to make progress. If you manage the desperate gymnastics, casually saunter up Elegy to finish, or more in keeping step right and pad up Clive Coolhead. Protected by side-runners, (a chockstone in the crack) and RPs low down. Votes on the database suggested the route might be E6 7b, but as it has only had one ascent - who would know? © ROCKFAX
