30m.

Rockfax Description
The blank line on the right-hand side of the slab. Climb past thin cracks (which don't take wires) and make a series of mantel-type moves to the first runner at about 10m. The rest is steady, but the wide crack often has a nest so avoid this by going up Nettlerash if this is the case. A side-runner in Nettlerash at the start is possible, dropping the grade to VS. Finish at the twin tree stumps, or go left from lower to the fixed belay. © Rockfax

βeta: There is sometimes a bird’s nest in the top crack which can easily be avoided by going left at the top.

βeta: Good fun but a little polished. The hardest move is getting established in the crack system. Polished due to people abseiling down it .

βeta: The block seems fairly stable - well it took my weight. The route is rather dusty though
