18m.

Rockfax Description
A tricky route which is hard to lead ground up. A clipstick and a redpoint approach improve this route. Climb up to the arete, then make an interesting move left onto the ramp and walk up this to a smaller arete/groove. Move up this with difficulty. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Strenuous climbing up the overhanging wall. Start below right of the arete, climb up and over a ledge to a hidden peg. Traverse left (5m) to the bolts. Climb through these - lower off the top one.

Mike Goldthorp 24 Feb, 2011 Lead O/S Classic! Like climbing on slate volumes, not just pulling, you have to actually climb it. Did it with twin ropes, one for 1st 2 clips and one for the rest - worth doing to avoid drag round the sharp slate arete.
