22m.

Rockfax Description
A well-travelled test piece. Start about 25m up left from the base of the buttress on some boulders. Climb the short wall to the thin crack which gives the meat of the climb. Good protection. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The irresistable crack up the left hand wall is everything it promises and worth 3 stars if perfectly dry. Climb up fairly steadily until the crack steepens, the protection becomes even better, and the holds diminish alarmingly. Crank fiercely to salvation over the lip and a steady finish up the slab.

βeta: Just about benchmark E3, maybe a tiny bit hard. Safe, techy, hard, awesome moves. Currently relatively clean and in 3 star condition.
