20m. The striking arete between Welcome to the Cruise and Diverticulitis. A very bold sketchy move above a grim landing gains the first peg (E4 if extended), then more reasonable but well positioned climbing up the prow past another peg. Upgraded due to popular demand and common sense. Possibly 6b for the short.
[Cleaned Summer 2014, pegs in okay condition but both can be backed up nearby]

Tried again, failed clean climb and what a battle, the crux oh the crux - I am running out of skin on some fingers. This maybe the toughest route I should be able to climb, 6b I think for me as could do with being a longer person. :o) x4

Self-Belay, Tried this route for 1st time and did 2 failed attempts - crux was where I struggled. Looks like I could do this with a bit more work. Nice route.

Took ages to man-up to the crux move -felt like a guaranteed barn-door. After that the upper arete is great fun - nice delicate climbing. Definitely felt E5 to me...

Best Route in the quarry! Bold move at start to get first peg and its still got some surprises after that! Thought E56A would be fairer grade!
