12m. The obvious corner is not as unpleasant as both appearance and name suggest, and actually provides some reasonably nice climbing. Two in situ threads. Much easier than the guidebook grade: HS 4b (or possibly just Severe 4b).

Update: Now regraded to HS 4b. Voting from low Severe to high VS is now available.

Best to top out and take the overhang direct rather than use ab ring. This is the best move and the only reason it would get a VS grade

Lives up to its name. I have voted it HS 4b simply because the system won't let me vote it S 4a which is closer to the mark. Mind you even that might be generous.

Yes, rotten! The concretions turn to a sandy mush when damp, so wait until its dried out properly.
