12m. Takes the diagonal crack to the right of the original to ledge then finishes as the original. More protection than the original.

I need to practice jamming!

Reachy start, with some sharp hold. Otherwise lots of fun lay backing and jamming the crack.

Technical, then tricky, then thrutchy.

Layback was a bit tricky with gear and hands wanting to go in same place, then nice climb, if a bit thruxy at the top. Good second VS lead of the day and season.

Lovely. Paul led it well albeit with some hesitation at the top chimney! Followed in style - always easier with a rope above you. :)

Very poor effort on my part at following Peri up the route. Awkward to establish yourself at the base of the crack but easier ground above.

First time on this route, and third route in 8 months.....bloody good fun. The diagonal crack has just enough edge on it to layback off but if jamming is your bag that two. Interesting finish through the chimney, my luck was in not much Pooo

seconded alan on this two years ago. one pre placed piece of gear as second from previous team had been unable to remove it . The technical crux is the bouldery start, unless youre very, very tall.
