13m. Start beneath the obvious hanging chimney at a wobbly triangular block in a crack. Climb up this to a dubious looking broken ledge above your belayer (er... presumably solid enough?!) from which twin cracks lead up into the chimney. From the chimney head out and up onto a lovely final slab. Glorious hex placements aplenty!

Nice route, nice rest with a full foot-back jam in the large flared crack beneath the overhang, and a nice surprise as you pull over the overhang to find there's still another 10ft of slab to go. Great fun ;)

A fantastic climb, one of the best single-pitch VS's I've done. Felt fairly tenuous below the chimney, then some beautiful jugs in perfect positions, a happy little chimney perch and a spotless top-out slab, all with on-demand gear.
