18m.

Rockfax Description
18m. The classical wide fissure is climbed by the left-hand corner with a step left onto The Pulpit if a rest is needed. Gain the right-hand crack a little higher. The right-hand crack can be followed throughout at HS but the really gangly can bridge the whole affair. Well-protected throughout. © Rockfax

βeta: Use half ropes as there’s a short traverse at the mid section, bring lots of cams. Use a blue cam and a size 8 nut for the belay at the top .

βeta: Great in the dark! And my second did bridge it (with a headtorch) - now that was funny to watch. The crux for that method was getting back down at the top!

βeta: A little polished at the start but a nice route. I'd love to see someone bridge the whole thing and still retain the ability to father children afterwards.
