12m.

Rockfax Description
A fine route up the centre of the wall, starting at the notch. The climbing is tough, the holds are generally poor, and there are no runners. The landing is pretty grim too! A left-hand variation is Spike at f7B which is easier to pad out. © Rockfax

βeta: Dont forget, its graded for an ascent, without mats, and onsight. If you didnt know anything about it, the E6/7 grade would be about right

βeta: Ive read quite a lot about whether it E6 or E7. Its only 3 or 4 moves, and after all the talk I had expected it to be easier than it is.

βeta: This is incorrectly listed as E7 in the graded list. It should really be high in the E6s.

Dave Musgrove Jnr 13 Apr Solo RP Lovely climbing, shame about the awful landing. Flashed on the rope but then TR'd a few more times to make absolutely certain. Basically a brilliant E3 6b but with an E6 landing.

Rob Greenwood - UKClimbing 2 May, 2018 Solo RP On another day I would have gone for the flash, but with the shoulder as/is - and the fact there was already a top rope in place - I figured now was as good a time as any. Nice to get it done.

Bloke on a Rope 5 Oct, 2014 TR RP Wow, this felt hard! Managed to shunt solo it clean on my 6th go then couldn't get it again, pretty sure it would feel easier without my back pack swinging about on the end of the rope, would be pretty serious solo especially with that landing!
