25m.

Rockfax Description
The trade route at Split Rock Quarry is a brilliant classic. Start at a small, shallow cave at ground level. Hard moves up the crack sprouting from the cave lead to an easing at 6m. Follow the steepening crack past two threads and climb the wall above to a large niche, bolt. Move up and left out of the niche on big holds to a small corner and follow this on more good holds to a move right at its end to finish. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Start at the small alcove in the center of the crag, from there follow the large, obvious crack to half height and continue up to a ledge/shattered cave 5m from the top. Either follow the groove above straight up or use the left arete (slightly easier.)

julesmckim 20 Oct Lead O/S Fast start...first route on a cold morning after partying and not enough sleep. Quite sustained and pumpy with great hidden holds and decent gear. Top was a bit disappointing...better to eliminate the holds on the left arete and stay in the centre of the scoop.

Kemics 18 Jul, 2015 Lead G/U Ground up style. Took one fall by the first thread..but really mentally whimped out. Pulled back on and finished fine. Pulled the ropes and lead clean second time. Great line, super safe gear. Proper 3 stars. Although if i'm totally honest, felt more like E2 5c because it's so safe. Very comparable to regent street. But I'll happily take easy e3 tick

Somehow missed bolt in niche and clipped one of the 2 to the right. Moved left above niche to finish up corner as per Rockfax. 3* smash and grab. Thanks Mark.
