40m.

Rockfax Description
A solo that is committing as the easiest line is hard to follow. There is some poor gear at 25m which may slow you down a bit, both up and down. Start in from the arete. Follow some holds up and right with an awkward reach to gain a good ledge. Move back up and left to a more broken area of rock and poor runners. From the left of the ledge, make a committing move to a good hold and follow more positive holds to the top. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
basicaly a solo!

Misha 21 Jun, 2015 Lead O/S Don't fall off! First half to the broken area is a solo. There's some gear on the second half though, including a folded over number 6 nut in a shot hole (number 7 would work as well) which took a while to extract so might have held! Not that hard - a lot of 4c with a bit of 5a - but mildly exciting.

Sebastien Gastaud 28 Sep, 2011 Lead O/S First protection was 7 metres from the ground (small sling around a small flake), and the next piece was a dodgy nut (Yellow DMM offset) at 18 metres. I then placed at last a medium cam 25m from the ground, before starting the Richard of York finish. The minimal choice of protection makes it harder than E1, but the technical grade is definitely a 5a in my opinion.
