22m.

Rockfax Description
An entertaining route which starts delicately up the perched metal tube to gain the wall. An initial tricky pull gains the wall and eventually the line of bore-holes, which are usually filled with water. An access bolt above allows you to abseil down and dry them out with a rag. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Start by climbing the metal pipe(be gentle), a stiff pull allows one to meander up the lower wall until a hard move left gains access to the line of shot holes . Yard up these with glee to a tricky rockover before the belay.

F.A Jon Ratcliffe 23/07/08 Named by, and in honour of, the Great man himself, the big G, Mr Geoooorge Smith. Originally bolted by George back in the day, not sure which day, possibly a Thursday.

Brown 11 Aug, 2013 Lead Bores dried on lead. Two short sleeved base layers required to dry all bores. But it may be possible to use one long sleeved base layer.

JulesV 8 Sep, 2012 Lead dog 5 days later, bores were still full of water. Got to 3rd bore from top then foot slipped out of slimy bore. Would go in this state but more like 7b. Not sure if it rained here in the week i reckon this would take a long time to dry out unless dried with rags.

Glyn 3 Sep, 2012 Lead dog Bores were full if water. Just getting up the route was a battle! Would be awesome if it was dry. Needs more than two days of sun
