14m. The tall rift just left of the fence is a long standing classic. Sustained and a little awkward, but well protected. © Rockfax

Awkward and with some proper chimneying techniques required, very enjoyable though

I'd have made a terrible chimney sweep.

i'd recommend a lot of large gear for this, because running out of hexes 2/3 of the way up is slightly scary

excellent route, but so green that I was nervous on the solo.concentrating on keeping the foot placements very precise.

You get exactly what you expect - a chimney. Good fun and well protected, although I did move one cam most of the way up with me.

I reckon it is harder than VD, but I did it in walking boots in the damp, which probably made it feel harder than it was.

Rather slippery in walking boots, to say the least
