23m. Powerful climbing and crimpy initial moves lead to a long reach to a good hold over the roof where the difficulty eases slightly.

βeta: There’s a loose block near the top of the route! Be aware it’s got a couple of crucial holds on it just below the last draw ... maybe climb almost me first and check the block out on the way down before trying it!

βeta: My vague beta: 5 big moves in a row covering a lot of ground then a powerful shouldery sequence to get established over the roof on poor/awkward feet, finishing with a somewhat delicate top. The route flows like a dream.

J1_TOV 21 May Lead RP Had a bunch of goes before I realised I needed to refine the beta through the crux but after the point of having it down needed 3 more redpoints to get it done. 2nd of the grade.

Billg 19 Jun, 2011 Lead O/S Onsighted it putting the draws in. I used a different sequence to most people using a second tufa pinch to the left of the one everyone uses. This drops the route by about half a grade but makes for a more consistant route
