12m. The first crack right of the main angle gives a short tussle and is especially awkward at the start. © ROCKFAX

This climb is in 35 logbooks, and on no wishlists.

Felt rather pumpy! Had to have a rest via a step left to bridge onto a ledge at half height. Dirty and wet in places. Take a few size 3-5 cams to protect it. Not sure about the grading for this...
