13m. Start beneath the obvious hanging chimney at a wobbly triangular block in a crack. Climb up this to a dubious looking broken ledge above your belayer (er... presumably solid enough?!) from which twin cracks lead up into the chimney. From the chimney head out and up onto a lovely final slab. Glorious hex placements aplenty!

Ticklists: UK road to wide crack mastery.

A fantastic climb, one of the best single-pitch VS's I've done. Felt fairly tenuous below the chimney, then some beautiful jugs in perfect positions, a happy little chimney perch and a spotless top-out slab, all with on-demand gear.
