14m.

Rockfax Description
14m. The steep crack near the left-hand side of the face leads to bulges, zig-zag left then right and finally left again. Amazingly the steep initial crack was first climbed before 1906! © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
From the recess 2 metres left of 'Central Climb', make hard moves up and left to a large ledge. Then move right to the large crack that goes up and right, follow this till it is possible to finish leftwards. First bit had been climbed pre-1906!!

Arthur Dolphin. 1940

pebbles 10 Oct, 2010 Lead RP had climbed this on top rope and then led on preplaced gear a few weeks ago. still almost cocked up the final slab due to rope drag - got part way up slab then was unable to move amd had to untie from one rope, then haul like a bastard to get enough slack on the other to finish - scary. Lesson - however much you think youve extended further down, extend it more!

Turned out to be not to bad, no rests or falls, but was mad that I used my knee getting onto the first ledge. Partly because my head was telling me it was going to be hard. Great climb and is the toughest 4c I have done at Almscliff.
