28m. A magnificent line, great for aficionados of slippery limestone fist-jamming. Follow the crack-line throughout. The main difficulties are concentrated in passing the lip of the biggest roof. Marks will be deducted for shoddy style, use of knees and any squealing. © ROCKFAX

Great climb. There's no fist-jamming on it, but hand-jamming and then burly jug-hauling to stand up above the roof. Take all your hexes and big cams.
