8m.

Rockfax Description
8m. The right-hand edge of the gully is pleasant enough. Starting up the gully to avoid the initial bulges is quite a bit easier. © Rockfax

Started in the gully, direct start seemed bold and unprotectable for the grade, top is probably Diff for shorter climber, but Mod otherwise, making the route unexciting.

The only worth movements are in the first 2mts when you are unprotected. Go around through the left gully, put some protection, come back down and enjoy it.

Ah, the shame. :( A really unpleasant start that wasn't what I expected in my 'warm up climb'. I'm not surprised the direct start gets HS in the new book.
