34m. A fine climb with a butch crux that feels a long way off the ground. Climb the long groove to the bulges then power left through these on a series of pockets (old tat) to a tough pull into the groove. Finish direct - sensible, or illogical and guaranteed to increase rope-drag exit rightwards. © ROCKFAX

There was no hand hold, where I expected, and I couldn't reverse the move and eventually fell off, ripping off the load-limiting sling fully. Hard! I topped out after a couple of rests, with a completely different sequence of moves. My second did not finish the route, so I abbed off to clean.
