30m.

Rockfax Description
A super classic to the right of the big rounded arete - possibly the most photogenic route in the world! Never desperate and never-ending - 30m of pump with kneebars galore. Hot-shots run races on the route, not that it really needs any more polishing! © Rockfax

shed_hed 17 Oct Lead dog Such an awesome route through continuously steep terrain for the entire way, and never really desperate but super pumpy. Got about 2/3rds of the way up on the onsight go before just fully running out of steam. Took a few more goes to get to the top, not because it was much more challenging but because I was knackered. Really please with my onsight go in the end, got lots of kneebars in which at the start of the trip I'd have just tried to climb past, even managed to half rest on a knee scum at one point to get a few moves higher. Moved over to Michelle's project after this so didn't have another go, but one to come back for and do once I've worked it a little.

mike reed 22 Feb, 2016 Lead RP At last...! For some reason this one got to be a sort of nemesis after giving it a couple of very tentative scary dogs over 2 visits in May and October 2013. Tried it on some friends draws 2 days ago and after their success managed to put the draws back in and then finally send it today. Epic!!

Mike Owen 11 Apr, 2013 Lead O/S It was actually pretty wet and I didn't manage to find many knee bars. Found it pretty hard and felt like I just had to keep going instead of taking my time, much harder than Priapos but a fantastic climb none the less.

ksjs 8 Sep, 2008 Lead dog this felt like a bit of a marathon and not the amazing route thats made out. great position, good steep climbing and a lovely line but too one-dimensional to be truly classic. only 2 short sections could be considered tricky and they really just need a bit of commitment.
