15m. Follow Blade Runner to the good ledge (top of the groove), then make a couple of awkward moves up the wall above. Step left and climb the prominent hand-crack, which is set in a little corner in its lower half.

Blazing sunshine; sweat; a swarm of flies hovering at the crux; spectators and some dithering all added to the pressure on this route.... Took a whipper narrowly missing the ledge but got straight back on the horse again. Lush climb, full of character :)
