15m. A hilarious minature version of the infamous inverted-V. Take a big cam or hexes to protect.

Brilliant route although I wasn't necessarily saying that at some points. Awkward, thuggy, strenuous and yet at the same time not intensely technical, despite having technical moves in places. Easily protected too. Jess did a far neater job than I managed!

You know how sometimes you dog a climb and think "I'll come back and do that clean"? This was not one of those routes. In the end, I powered through the crux on sheer revulsion at the thought of having to try it again. If I could award this route negative stars, I would.

Hidden hold. I guess it would feel easier if I did more Yoga. The grade depends hugely on your trust that the Pillar on the right is not going to collapse partly or entirely! I wouldn't risk a lead fall on gear placed in the crack, because even if the probability of a collapse is small, the consequences could be catastrophic. Not sure if that's reflected by the VS grade.
