22m. Excellent route - crap situation. Only 100 yds from an active quarry so out of bounds during the week. Also start protected by 50 yds of brambles. But still worth it! Finished in the rain. Do it before they take it away.

Ticklists: BMC On-Peak Rock: Esoterica, Froggatt to Black Rocks (BMC) - The Grade List.

Dangerous top - recommend bringing an extra rope and dropping it down for the belay. Good climbing, the top section would have been well protected if i'd brought big enough cams.

epic bramble bashing approach, ace climbing, 3 star stuff if it were at millstone. You top out onto a small ledge faced by a large detached looking block and a wall of mud and more brambles, so lowered off suspect gear leaving behind 2 cams, 2 wires, 3 hexes, 8 quick draws and a t-shirt used to try and pull on the brambles with. (retrieved gear by abseil the following evening as overtaken by darkness, the rock around the 'good' lower off wire broke apart as removed the nut) Whilst the climbing is ace I'd only recommend it to the esoterica junkie with a pre placed belay rope.
