15m.

Rockfax Description
A tight, but inescapable line. Start up Fighting Torque and continue direct with some hard moves over the bulge and up the arete. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The route can be climbed via a sequence to the right of the bolts, up the scoop, at hard 7b. A great variation but much easier than the true Under Duress line.

Ellis Bird 16 Mar, 2018 - Up the scoop right of the bolts, missing the true direct line and the missing holds. Maybe 7b this way and a great line!

_m.cox_ 14 Nov, 2017 Lead dog Seems harder than Fighting Torque, worked the moves out but was wet the next day.

brices 12 Nov, 2017 Lead RP 4th go, good route. Ended up crimping my way up the scoop without using the flowstone much. Similar in style and difficulty to fighting torque

jonleighton 8 Dec, 2013 Lead dog Felt really very hard, I can't even do all the moves although I can just about see how it can be climbed. Certainly a hell of a lot harder than any 7c I've tried.

La benya 22 Jan, 2012 Lead RP Stoked! Took too many sessions but got it quick today. Much harder than the others I've done of this grade... One of which was an 8a till recently. Probably borderline.

Dandan 14 Aug, 2011 Lead RP Simply stunning, 3 star all the way, and hard as nails! Hardest climb i've done yet so i'm not sure how qualified I am to comment but i think this is hard 7c+ or higher, took me considerably longer than any 7c. It has lost a hold while I have been working it (wasn't me!) which could explain the difficulty. awesome.
