20m. Avoid the stretch left by climbing direct. © ROCKFAX
Direct Finish - 6c+. Excellent climbing. At the groove stretch left around the bulge to a hidden 'monster' then move back right. At the overlap bridge and pull direct on small crimps. Clip an old bolt and finsh straight up on delicate moves. Traverse to the belay left or right.
