16m.

Rockfax Description
Head up the lower wall rightwards to ledges. Pull through a bulge above passing a pocket to a rest at an easing in angle. The wall above leads quickly to a lower-off under the overhang at the horizontal break. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A useful addition up the wall between Torpeodo and Clashing Socks. Taxing and reachy for those lacking the necessary stature. Start on the beach directly beneath the leaning crack of Torpedo. Six bolt runners.


Pull into a shallow depression with a rectangular block hold and reach up and right to ledges and the first bolt runner. From the highest ledge above, surmount the awkward black bulge with difficulty to grasp a large pocket and pull up to better holds and a rest in the obvious niche. Continue more easily directly up to a pair of 12mm abseil rings situated under the main roof.

βeta: Chalk indicates lots of people are using the juggy flake above the ledge, which gives an easier left hand variant to the line. CAUTION!! I gave it a good thump on my way up and it felt detached and unstable.
