12m. Some vigorous undercutting across the width of the roof gives a good workout. The climb has been reduced in height to a new, lower, and much more healthy, double ring abseil station. Gain the start of the ramp and follow it as steepens to reach the far right end of the capping roof. Follow a series of powerful undercuts to a more agreeable position at the left end of the roof then pull over onto the lip. Move up again and traverse right until a last step up reaches a new double ring abseil station. Re-cleaned and re-equipped, with extra bolt added on the lip of the roof in 2012.

nice route. Took a couple of goes to suss how to get established over the roof.

Hard unless you spot the good holds over the roof. Rope running over the razor sharp roof edge was a tad unnerving

Couldn't work out how to get up to the overlap.

Very good climbing I thought, though it takes a bit of lateral thinking. Well worth climbing.

There is a super efficient way of doing the top, trust me.

Just been re-bolted, with new lower off just bellow the bulge, don't think it really makes much difference. Tricky in places but over all quite a nice route i thought... bit surprised at the comments bellow. Be careful when lowering off... there are sharp edges, (best to abseil off)
Tom Brierley Gore - Lead O/S - 29/Sep/12 with Shijing Hu

Didn't like this at all

Substantially more exciting than Dinosaur Beach, etc. A missing last bolt makes the adjectival grade (E3) seem apt, but a good cam 1.5 (a 2 will also go in shallow but it may get stuck!) is available down and right of the stub. I clipped the peg on the left and placed an optional rock/wallnut 4 on the right, and used the Eco above the roof on the right. The ab station was OK as they go in the New Quarry, but maybe bring some tatt and maillons or krabs if you're squeamish.
