15m.

Rockfax Description
14m. A great climb up the groove and crack cleaving the right wall of the gloomy recess - honest hard work and well protected throughout. Climb the leaning groove then continue up the concreted crack above until it fizzles out. Finger traverse right then pull for the top. A Direct Finish is only a little harder. © Rockfax

Jon Greening 24 May, 2017 Lead A bit of a nemesis this as I took a big fall off it 16 years ago. Ab'd down it to check the gear, but crucially this time I had a big cam to protect the steep section before the head wall. Brilliant climb on a beautiful hot may evening.
