35m. The obvious rising crack which crosses the left-hand slab of the Glacis from left to right. Once a few metres past the buddlia, go more directly up to a lower-off (extended down from the large tree at the quarry rim).

Foot popped of the thin moves a third into the route which was bloody frustrating! I blame my worn out shoes! Took a nice swing onto a bomber tri-cam in a little pocket, pulled back up to the gear and with a little extra care finished the route.
