32m.

Rockfax Description
The soaring line of Cave Route Right-hand yields a superb climb. There is much fixed gear but extra wires are still required. With these in place it is 7b+. The main difficulties are the bulge at 8m, exiting the shallow niche at one-third height and the peg pockets below upper crack - these are often wet. A second pitch climbs out of the cave at 6a but is very rarely climbed. © Rockfax
