12m.

Rockfax Description
10m. A slippery start leads to good jamming above. High in the grade and worth 4c in anything less than perfect conditions. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The slightly too wide crack. Big cams will help. Can live up to its name in less than perfect conditions.

Lost my bottle a bit on the top and got Mike to hand down another couple of cams to protect the finish. Great route, really varied, and satisfying top-out moves.
