30m. Quite a serious climb, best suited to experienced trad. climbers who are not daunted by a bit of run-out. In contrast to the advice of the older guidebooks, it is best climbed in one big pitch. Two key shothole placements just above mid. height require some more creative or specialist gear, a tri-cam 1.5 is the optimum piece of kit. Ledges and shotholes accumulate soil and vegetation; the route becomes more serious if it is not clean. Cleared of vegetation and loose rock in summer 2014 and tidied up again in Jan. 2015.

Great lead from Ben. Tricky tricam removals from vertical shot holes.

Had critical tricams and hand placed pegs for shotholes protection. Really enjoyed this route.

I failed to find the crux finger-hold above 'that' slab after about 4 attempts. I must go back as it looks a great climb.

Climbed as second, only just managed it. Slab at start looks easy but is difficult, luckily for the leader there is a peg in the corner. Pro is difficult, so no leading this one for me.

Simon Wooster had recently cleaned this route, so it was in peak condition and Andy happened to have a set of tricams, essential to protect the below the crux. A bold route, delicate rather than strenuous, but great quality.
