22m.

Rockfax Description
A fine route with a crux that feels more committing than it should. Climb the previous route to the top of the crack - a good warm-up for what lies ahead. Attack the wall above, first left then right (good wires) to a desperate exit. Reaching the key hold is one thing, using it is another. © Rockfax
