33m.

Rockfax Description
A long and interesting outing with sustained climbing. Start up the slabby apron to the right of the central section of the cliff. The name is on the rock.
1) 6a, 2) 6a+, 3) 6a+, 4) 5c, 5) 6a. Pitches are generally less than 40m long and a short (slightly melted) fixed rope links the top of P2 and the start of P3. © Rockfax

Danger Wil Robinson. Rope can get caught while rappelling for the third time. Better to go off the face, not the side

Excellent. The rope leads across broken ground and is only needed to guide the way. Third pitch is easy for 6a+ but very sustained giving a very fine big pitch.

Enjoyable with a short section of 6a+ on p2. P3 can be split at an optional belay half way. Walked off, cairned path.

Led 2 and 4. Great route. Fixed rope could do with replacement as part of it got damaged in the fire. Walked off, well marked with cairns.

Me and Tom together; a failed rest day! Started at 3pm and led P2 and P4. P2 was probably the technical crux on a steep fingery slab but P3 was also tough, but great climbing up a chimney. Seemed to cross through all kinds of rock - sharp grey slabs, orange just-off-walls, quartz-like stuff. Saw Alex's and Jake's rope stuck so lowered Tom to go and free it which added a bit of time and excitement. Connor also pulled off a microwave after we heard theirs fall. Decided against the ab and walked off the gorge between Gerakios and Symplegades, found the path and lost it again, finished in the dark. Good route but probably needs more traffic.

Good route, crux pitch was lovely corner climbing. Although the untied death scramble across the ledge/gorge to free Jake and Speedy's rope (stupid abbing)
