10m.

Rockfax Description
The easiest hard route here pre-dates the others by a decade - it will still leave you breathless! Climb the left side of the face aiming for the right edge of the capping roof, to finish as for Apparent North. Significantly easier in cool conditions. f7A+ above a (big!) pile of mats, and/or a snow drift. © Rockfax

Duncan Campbell 4 Jan, 2015 Sent dnf Tricky bugger! Bit warm (!) on the slopers and as I'm a tiddler I struggled to reach from the crack to the good bit of the sloper. Would Defo head back with cloudy cool conditions. Be great to climb this thing! Great movement.
