14m. Good (and reachy) climbing up the left-hand side of the face. Start up the black right-facing flake then climb more or less directly up the wall. Easier for the tall. © Rockfax

Not sure if because I was seconding (though with a full rack on) but felt very easy and comfortable for a 5c. To be fair it felt more like 5b. Some of the moves were committing but not too bad for a 5'9 person. Might struggle a bit more if you're shorter.

Climbed twice as leader wanted a clean lead. Fell off the same place twice (long reach after first horizontal crack), the second time I blame on the rain.

Start very difficult and reachy. Had many attempts at the start. One rest on gear on the first break.

with Rob, Tom L

Had to Lock off below my shoulder to reach intermediate holds at one point, definitely reach dependent (difficulty wise). Fun though :)
