20m. Climb the easy slab to gain the start of the slanting finger crack. Fix some gear in the crack and launch out. The wall is gently overhanging with poor footholds and hard moves between fingerlocks for about 5 metres. After that there are good footholds and the angle is easier. Traverse another 3 or 4 metres to reach a good resting place with comfy hand jams, then climb straight up a short flake crack to gain the slab near a hawthorn tree.

Well protected climbing but very stenuous to place with the lack of footholds at the start. Was just about to put a nice juicy wild strawberry in my mouth before setting off, when my eye caught glimpse of a Human Poo! Nice! thanks for that!

Great experience.... I spent a lot of time dangling in mid air... wasting energy trying to remove well placed cams that had walked into the crack. Respect to Eddy on the rocks who lead it! (Learnt some great Aid techniques though!)

messed around placing crap gear then pumped out and fell off ripping a cam, almost hitting the ground, a tree then remus. first trad fall, might as well make it a good one!! think we scared some actual climbers on their nearby route.

Same tactics as last time, but managed to move much more quickly.

bomber finger locks all the way. pumpy for the first few moves (crux) then enough footholds to take the weight off. will lead it next time..

Checked out the gear on abseil and just took what I needed. Still got spanked. Placed all the gear and did all the moves, but took two rests on the hard section.

Thought it looked easy. It isn't.
