12m. Intense and sustained. Make sure you're wearing stiff shoes for the toe jams! Lovely if you enjoy pain - bring it on!!

Ticklists: The best the UK has to offer for mere mortals (apart from the lakes cos its always wet).

Only had one go on top rope. Took a few rests but got to the top in the end. It's very sustained climbing (lots of 5c moves) in a style that I completely lack. I couldn't imagine trying to lead it - must be more like a well-protected E2 surely

"thirded" Emb 2 so no runners to take out. Loved it. Started sprinting and didn't dare to stop till I was over the top. 5c most of the way I think. Would imagine it's like E2 if you're placing gear, but I can't comment. Must be v hard though. cool!
