27m. The irresistable crack up the left hand wall is everything it promises and worth 3 stars if perfectly dry. Climb up fairly steadily until the crack steepens, the protection becomes even better, and the holds diminish alarmingly. Crank fiercely to salvation over the lip and a steady finish up the slab.
