20m.

Rockfax Description
It looks unlikely at the grade but once you get on it the climbing is good and the moves are surprisingly independent. Start by heading towards the groove of Ra, then hang-a-left onto the steeper section above, where it is easy to get lost and take a whipper. A long move enables the upper wall to be reached, teeter up this to the lower-off. © Rockfax

FA. Chris Hardy 1989. The name refers to what happened to a sack of gear which was left at the bottom of the route.

stp 20 Sep, 2016 Lead RP The epic struggle is over. By far the longest spent on a 7b. The main difficulty was fear of clipping the fourth bolt (close to the deck if you fell pulling up rope). Extended the draw today and and then did it next go. Fine sustained little pitch and high in the grade.
