25m. A stunning and direct route up the wall. Start at the base of a thin L-R diagonal crack 10m left of the shattered cave that is the start of Certain Surprise. Move up to a big hand ledge and make extending moves to clip a bolt. From here climb direct to a large break at half height. Arrange protection, kiss the guns and power through the steepness to another break. Top out moving rightwards past the broken cave.

Loads of holds which are probably quite nice to use if you don't pump yourself to hell in the first 5m.

Not technically on-sight as tried to lead first, got almost to the bolt but couldn't commit to standing up to clip it. Did it easily on second, shame.

Lovely climbing! NB this route is given as "Rustic Wall Direct" in the new West Country Climbs Rockfax but seems to be the same route.
