42m.

Rockfax Description
Originally climbed with some bits of drilled gear, the right-hand side of the smooth wall now gives an awesome route which has become surprisingly popular (F7c). Start at a thin crack below and right of the smooth wall (as for Hysteria). Climb the crack for 5m then move left to a ledge. Attack the desperate crack above to gain some reasonable but hard-earned protection. Move left to a thread and a rest - crucial runner in slot to back-up thread. Climb up above then make a difficult undercut traverse rightwards and move back left to two threads. Move up into some scoops (old pegs - not crucial) above then climb the wall to a wide crack which leads to Mysteries. Finish direct up the headwall which is still taxing. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Edit: The "old pegs - not crucial" are currently (summer 2012) "single shiny peg" not sure when it was put in though. Jacob.

nathanlee 26 May, 2017 Lead O/S Get in! Had chalk on it but knew nothing. So nearly lost it by the threads, couldnt take a hand off to clip so just kept moving and clipped from above. Def a memorable battle. Lucky that the range opened early just before we went govans!

Mike Owen 16 Apr, 1990 Lead O/S This was originally climbed by Gary Gibson with some stainless steel pegs for protection. Why his name isn't recorded as the FA I don't know. Steve was the first to do it without the stainless steel pegs. I was there at the time they were still in and was happy enough to do the route whatever. Never thought anything about the pegs, too busy onsight to notice that they were supposed to be in drilled placements.
