18m.

Rockfax Description
18m. The long chimney is approached by a crack to pass blocks and then gives classic bridging, as well as back and footing, if you don't get too involved with its dark and gungy depths. © Rockfax

Damp when started - hard first part, rained - harder second part - more rain, and harder third part - once worked out how to get into bridge easier, then into corner, and thrutching to top - no nice holds at top! HVS 5a in the wet!
