16m. The wide corner is a titanic struggle for most, wedging-a-way up is the only option though those with strong arms and little imagination can layback, though hey may end up shitting blue lights as the top approaches. For those who haven't had enough Green Streak is a finish up the hanging crack in right wall reached by a gritty hand traverse © ROCKFAX

Absolutely exhausting and lost a fair amount of blood in the process. Never again.

Pete Graham - Lead - 11/May/08 with James Fleming

I rather stupidly followed Chris Craggs' advice and tried to off-width the crack, but collapsed in exhaustion after only a couple of metres. Laybacked it easily on my second attempt. The final traverse & top handcrack ('The Green Streak') was pretty scary with some dodgy holds and a general lack of gear! Felt harder than the main route.
