12m.

Rockfax Description
The perfect route for its size with technical and interesting climbing from the moment you leave the ground. Follow the thin crack to good holds and wires beneath the overlap, then make a long move rightwards to reach a flat hold. Pull up and stand on this and then follow the thin crack in the wall above. © Rockfax

βeta: Excellent route on great rock! Good pro for the bouldery crux with distinctly wild moves - whilst the upper slab has trickier pro and still delightful climbing.

DrGav 6 Sep, 2009 Lead RP Preplaced gear as too out of practice & scared to place on lead. Felt great having wired the sequence. Very nice climbing but 1 key wire protects the crux - pumpy (for me) to place.
