18m. The flaky groove requires some hard work to pass the bulge. The wall above (old pegs) is also tricky. © ROCKFAX

what an ace route, take 2 stars from me, its a shame its not longer, and the top is on suspect rock if it wasn't for that it would be 3 stars. ANCHOR IN REALLY BAD SHAPE.

Really enjoyed this route, steep climbing through the overhang and a strenuous exit.The belay/Abseil anchor needs replacing urgently!

I thought it was a good route when I lead it in '96- enjoyed it enough to do it twice that year. Belayed by throwing one rope down to the gully on the other side and geting Mark to tie it to a tree, i.e. there wasn't any good gear on the summit (a manky peg or two, in the wrong place). Worth doing if only for the summit experience.
