30m.

Rockfax Description
A brilliant technical route with hard moves at the top, although there are also some tricky sections lower down. There is a lower-off and a 60m rope just makes it down. © Rockfax

βeta: Awesome route! Two 6b cruxes with LOTS of 5c/6a before and after them. Good rests in between hard climbing. Fantastic, get on it!

Rob Greenwood - UKClimbing 15 Jul, 2018 Lead O/S Great technical moves low down, superb and unlikely moves through the steepness above. All in all it’s a total classic at the grade, comparable with the best in the country.

Jack jk 17 Jun, 2018 Lead Great climb. Consistently interesting climbing with a few enjoyable crux sections. Went left (following the line of least resistance and the rockfax topo) at the top and got it all clean first go, then climbed again finishing more direct up the flakes and fell trying to clip. The latter is a harder and better line for sure.

Theo Moore - UKC and UKH 2 Jul, 2017 Lead O/S Excellent and technical from start to finish. I was waiting for it to get hard but it never materialised... chalk on the holds helped.

Luke Owens 9 Jun, 2012 Lead dog Went straight for 2nd redpoint without putting clips in first. Got to a high point to the last move on the bulge. 3rd redpoint got to the last clip and slipped off the hold just after clipping the last bolt, Felt tired from the start...

Luke Owens 6 Jun, 2012 Lead dog Went for the on-sight, blew it low down then climbed it clean to the last moves/crux. Worked this out then went for redpoint. Climbed all the way to the soul destroying final moves and fell. Such a good route and well deserved 3 stars!

guyblackwood 2 Jul, 2006 Lead dog almost onsight! I actually fell off 3m from the top, but led the previous 27 without problem. Beta too. But all things considered, a pretty fine attempt for someone who's climbed once in 3 weeks! Must get stronger! Grrrrr!
