18m. A great climb up the long groove that is the main feature of the right-hand side of the cliff. A steep initial section leads to a block (the Pulpit) at the foot of the superb curving crack. This can be laybacked by Philistines (useful thread), the rest of us will revel in the quality of the jamming. © ROCKFAX

Not sure this felt much easier than the first time I climbed it 4 years ago. Great route tho, would get HVS at Burbage? I'm sure there is at least a 4c move in there somewhere.
