12m. Enjoyable climbing up the shallow scoop that is best done using double ropes to take advantage of all the gear placements. © ROCKFAX

Still enjoyable. Apparently gear placements weren't as easy on other climbs. Felt easier climbing than earlier HS (lay me back) although that may be a combination of different style and the fact that lay me back is in need of some gardening.
