18m.

Rockfax Description
Well named. The bottomless, rounded crack in the centre of the wall is a fine, if hard-won line. Start at a thin crack left of the bottomless rounded crack.
Move up to a good, small nut placement at 3m and reach right for positive side-pulls. Make some committing moves to the crack proper and good jams and cams. Follow the sustained series of rounded cracks and breaks to the top. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A rewarding climb once the litchen striken slab and moss filled cracks are cleaned. With technical and sustained climbing from start to finish this is certainly a contender for the best route in the haytor area for its grade.

Stroppy 30 Jun TR RP Lower section felt a bit too insecure for a lead attempt (this time!) In good condition at the moment though! - Relatively speaking.

Lee_Meaden 21 Jun TR RP Planned on leading this but wasn't happy with placing gear in flared crack. The good placements felt difficult to place whilst climbing. Will need to come back and practice placing the gear...

Mike Goldthorp 29 Nov, 2012 Lead O/S Bloody hell I was glad to get to the top of this! Sooo sustained, slopey feet, mega right forearm, bicep and calf pump, just relentless! Most of the gear felt pretty bomber, perhaps the odd flared placement, but plenty of good cams if you have the right sizes and havent used them all in the bottom crack (save a 1 or 2 for the short top crack). It could also do with a little scrub, bit lichenous atm. Was rewarded with savage hot aches at the top, let the whole of the moors know with my screams of pain/joy, very memorable!
