12m.

Rockfax Description
12m. The wide crack in the groove is absolutely perpendicular and also quite steep. Classic bridging or technical thrutching are the usual forms of progress. The upper part is easier. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
This gets S in BMC guide, left as HS (Rock fax) as there are log book ticks.

buxtoncoffeelover 21 Jul, 2018 Lead A bit of a sandbag at this grade. Uninspiring gear low down (2 small nuts), but good small cams in halfway break eased the anxiety! Good thrutching & nice bridging, but never easy

onlyfoddington 24 Apr, 2015 Lead O/S I really struggled on this - I did not go in the crack and therefore did not realise there was, by the sound of it, a huge crack to use inside. I spent ages fretting in several places.
