25m. The true direct start, without recourse to the gully on the right is not well protected. Many people climb up Gaucho and place a high runner before joining the Pillar about 5m up. Naughty of them. The 5a variation higher up keeps left. The crag classic.

Did the cheat start having done the proper start on a previous occasion and really hurt my arm. Great route, but maybe a bit optimistic with 2 novice seconds with an hour to dark. Martin climbed 3rd, struggled, was lowered. Had to ab to retrieve gear. His next project!

Bloody hell. Absolute brownpoint. Wind was gusting 40+ kts, got pumped to fuck messing about with gear, climbing up then down 3 times trying to pass tricky bits + clinging on from the wind made rests impossible. thought I was about to drop off at the steep crux and plummet onto my crappy gear. never been more glad to top out in my life

I think the direct start does warrant the grade cos the bottom is very bold. Climbing straightforward though and once you get in a second piece of gear that will actually stop you decking out it is plain sailing to the top. Lovely route. :D

Not sure if I did the 'direct start' or not - the guidebook didn't mention it I think, so I started slightly to the right, but definitely not as far as Gaucho. The start was a bit difficult and hard to protect for the first couple meters, but after that it gets pretty easy, with good protection. It was getting on for dark when I did it, and I sometimes took a while to spot the holds, but generally when I found them, they were juggier than I expected. It is a nice line, with a bit of exposure.
