13m. Starts up the large tree at the left hand end of The Waterpipe Bay. Or start directly on the rock face. Strenuous and tricky start on small-ish edges (hard 4b, possibly 4c) and on dubious rock gains the large crack. Easier from here.

Wye's it a trad classic (up to HVS)?

Quite strenous placing gear at the start and was a little nervous of the rock (which slowed me down and added to the strain on the arms). I tried to keep my arms straight but this meant my back was hovering an inch or two from the tree .. sod this, I leant back and used the tree with my back. I don't mind trying to stick to a line but to get pumped out on the first 15 ft of my first climb of the evening when all I had to do was lean back a couple of centimeters? I don't think so.
