60m.

Rockfax Description
A sustained pitch. Start just to the right of crack of Central Sadness and climb past two bolts - both are hard to clip and the consequences of not doing so would be painful. Move up and right to gain the top of the groove and easy climbing that leads to the next bolt. Sustained but never desperate climbing leads to a junction with Central Sadness at the finger crack. Follow this to the top. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
start 2m right of Central Saddness below a line of 7 bolts. Climb upto the little Groove heading pretty much straight up following the line bolts. a couple of hard move past the last bolt leads to a ledge right of the detached spike on the 2nd pitch of CS. finish up the cracks of Central Saddness to finish.
You only just reach the belay on 60 m ropes

willoates 14 Apr Lead O/S Slightly wobbly first bolt gave me a little concern when clipping all the rest, but actually the rest seemed ok. Good sustained climbing leading to the to pitch of Central sadness gives an amazing 56m pitch! Flippin well good!

Alex Mason 14 Mar, 2011 Lead O/S Brilliant pitch with spicily spaced bolts. I lowered off from central sadness P1 but still climbed most of the independent stuff and took some exciting pendulums stripping the draws. f6c+ or E4.1

david morse 25 Oct, 2010 2nd O/S A safer way to enjoy the central sadness top crack. When the bottom half cleans up this will be a three star route. The top 20m or so is the best climbing I have done on slate, that crack is amazing

Glyn 26 Aug, 2010 Lead dog Broke a hold off on the top crux just before moving left to join the top finger crack of central sadness. Crux has defiantly been made harder. Great technical moves low down and big ass rock overs high up. Found clipping the second bolt pretty gripping. Draw was pre-placed on this bolt. Top finger crack of central sadness is also fantastic.
