17m.

Rockfax Description
Unusual climbing on large sloping holds gains a heart-stopping finish. Start 2m right of the arete.
Move up and right to stand on a good ledge. Head left into a cramped niche and pull out insecurely on slopers. More steep moves gain a ledge and a brief breather. Climb the final wall on pockets and hard to spot finger-edges. Lower-off just above. © Rockfax

βeta: Good route, if you like slopers, slopers and a few more slopers. It is actually really good climbing, just a shock after so much crimping recently on Portland. Save something for the last few moves!!

ferdia 9 Jul, 2015 Lead O/S didn't have a guidebook or enough draws. made some out of prussicks etc and spent a while on the last shelf figuring out where the route might go! really weird climbing. more like winter climbing with all the ledges and udging around!! clipped one draw sort of back and footing and another looking like i was losing a game of twister.... ? great route. produced a lot of laughs.
