20m. A good sustained route with fun moves and a crux near the top, though maybe not the easy warm-up route its builders intended it to be. The route is on the back wall, just right of the tunnel. Start next to the boulder - there may be a Quarryman's clip-stick in place for the first bolt. Monopoints and jug-handle tools pretty much mandatory, or take the M10 tick for a 'Vertiges with homemade leashes and dual-point crampons' ascent.

Steady until the top, where the slots aren't easy to spot, especially the one above the flat ledge - spent a while there psyching up to go off tenuous natural holds before spotting the slot eventually. Nice route.

Felt hard! Maybe I'm just weak and fat after christmas...Certainly felt significantly harder than the warm up!

We didnt have a clip-stick and couldnt make one, so I climbed up to the first bolt, clipped it, rapidly descended to the ground and then led it, so I guess I had 'beta' for the route. Easily onsightable, a cool route. Led then 2 laps.

Even with a bit of beta it's still hard work finding those hooks at the top!
