15m. A hilarious minature version of the infamous inverted-V. Take a big cam or hexes to protect.

Hidden hold. I guess it would feel easier if I did more Yoga. The grade depends hugely on your trust that the Pillar on the right is not going to collapse partly or entirely! I wouldn't risk a lead fall on gear placed in the crack, because even if the probability of a collapse is small, the consequences could be catastrophic. Not sure if that's reflected by the VS grade.

Oh dear. Made a right hash of this and fell off near the top. Luckily my slightly dodgy nut stopped me hitting the ledge. To cap it off we got 3 bits of gear stuck which took about an hour to get out. Not the best effort!
