22m.

Rockfax Description
Another common solo, but it is also a reasonable lead. Start at the ledge on the edge of the wall. Head up the groove until you can swing left onto spike jugs on the wall. Mantel up on these. A hard move up and right regains the arete and the first bolt. Carry on up the arete past a second bolt to the top. © Rockfax

kieranor ?Apr DWS O/S Very good climbing with lovely moves on good incut crimps ! Been looking forward to this for a while ! Quite steady as it turned out with the hardest move seemingly at the beginning although I think maybe I did the start of bathtime ! Very very good just gotta keep it together

Dan Hale 19 Feb, 2014 Lead O/S Really good climb, quite atypical for slate due to the presence of actual holds! Felt quite steady, although I wouldn't want to test the bolts; they look about 20 years old and feel like they're made of mud!

Mike Goldthorp 23 Jul, 2013 Solo O/S Quite a position to be on the solo, the bottom wall has some beaut slatey moves and the top crux felt pretty spicy for DWS. Doing Nicky's Leap just rounded off an awesome experience! 6c with some good rests.

Glyn 14 Aug, 2012 Solo O/S Agree with Will on the climbing not being amazing, bottom groove is a bit flaky and there's a few loose holds. Definitely exciting and an amazing though!
