14m.

Rockfax Description
A bold and exciting climb on superb holds that requires a confident approach. Start at the toe of a ramp below the steep pocketed wall.
Climb up the ramp for a few metres and then swing up onto the wall on a good pocket and use the crack on the left, close to the arete, to move up to more good holds at mid-height. Finish steeply up the central crack-line on yet more good holds. © Rockfax
