16m. 14th route. Almost dead centre of main quarry face.
Blocky, easy start leads to a perfect fat finger crack.
7 bolts to a lower off

Clare and I did almost every move quite differently from each other! At the crux I did a sort of double gaston in the crack. Nice route, anyway - however you do it.

Five years after first attempt got it clean (so kind of onsight really because I don't remember it!) Used a finger jam early on but didn't jam the crux, used a layback instead. Nice route.

You don't need to use the finger jams but it's more satisfying if you do :-) Nice Route.
