45m. The dramatic wall left of From a Distance. Very sustained climbing (F8a) with long run-outs, however a huge drop zone means you’ll only clock up air-time should you fall from the final hard section at 38m! Follow From a Distance until after its second crux (peg and thread). Step left and follow the line of holds leading out into the heart of the wall. Some long moves on crimps and slopers lead up and left to a respite (good peg). Blast up the wall above until a 'point-blank' shot for a shallow pocket marks the end of the difficulties. Finish direct above the break of Mysteries. Photo this page. © ROCKFAX

Edit: The "good peg" at the "respite" on the left no longer exists and hasn't for some time. There is however, a bomber cam (camalot .4, the silver one)
