12m. The warm up climb, looks hard for the grade and it is.

Balancy and technical climbing up the open corner. Itís all there, just work it out before it burns you off!

If youíre struggling then youíre not ready for what Balmshanner has to offerÖ. itís not The Shanner itís you.

2nd go, pretty scrappy, didn't love it but much easier once you know the beta.
