13m. This Route was first climbed and graded F6c+ and definitely has a boulder problem crux off a matchstick Gaston. The route name is' Splashing Out' after Iian bought the cheapest drill bits known to man!

JLS 25 Mar, 2015 TR dnf I thought with a bit of help from a top rope I'd be able to figure the crux moves. Alas no, reckon Font 7a would be closer to the truth than French 7a is. (I've assumed "Mr Steve" is the last route, nearest the sea on the RH wall, referred to as "Splashing Out" in the SMC sport guide.)

JLS 23 Mar, 2015 Lead dog I'm left thinking that getting stood on the good ledge will be beyond most F7a leaders. I'm planning on going back to have another look but still, seems darn hard.
