25m. The original line up this bit of wall but not as good as its left-hand neighbour. The small corner leads easily to the ledge and bulge (this section needs wires). Step left and pull over for a rapid finish. © ROCKFAX
Climbs up to the left hand side of the pod/niche and makes a scary clip before you hit the crux... Powerful moves up the flake lead to a scary mini run out on positive holds to gain easier ground above to where the route finally eases out to about 6b+ climbing Just a little awkward move at the top to gain the chains..... Fantastic positions!
