12m. The attractive shallow groove in the pillar is overrated and undergraded - it is very unlikely the E2 5c grade came from an onsight lead (the poor gear placements needed some excavation in 2009). Boulder awkwardly up the groove to gain a rest at it's top (poor shallow RPs). Pull over the bulge and either continue up the highly eliminate wall as described in the guide (past more useless wires), or don't bother.

The Beast, it's name describes the route very well indeed as you need to be a beast to climb this brutal route, offers little protection that is worth while apart from a skinny sling round a large ledge before crux two. As stated below this really is a solo/top rope problem very low quality lead problem but awesome solo or top rope problem, a classic craigmore test tbh. 18/Sep/12: A great route that offers some nail bitting moves and some real balls, top ropes went well and will have a go on the trad once i sort out the top link. Gear less tbh couple of small micros followed by a possible sling round a large ledge.

There are many ways to use the holds to climb this one, many feel desperate, others less so. Highball to the top instead of fiddling gear in + pumping out. Fun and serious climb.

Dirty, friable rock combined with hard, committing moves with groundfall potential made me decide that this probably wasn't the best idea. Unfortunately I was past the point of no return so had to get a toprope dropped down. Highly eliminate in the upper section too.
