12m.

Rockfax Description
12m. The central groove is problematical until the first decent finger-jam is reached (a V2 problem). Teeter up the scoop above (no gear after the start) to an easier finish. © Rockfax

Andrew Barker 1 Sep, 2017 Solo O/S Bit of a puzzling start. The slab was a bit green and scary but not as scary as the damp descent off the back!

fuzzysheep01 14 May, 2017 Lead G/U A few goes at boulder problem start before it went - definitely awkward. Top slab a bit green and sandy which added spice - managed to find a decent runner on the left fortunately.

Graeme Hammond 19 Mar, 2016 Lead G/U Took few goes (more than I'd hoped) to figure out the boulder problem start. Bolder and more delicate above, with one very small wire might have protected the last move up the scoop.
