18m.

Rockfax Description
18m. The long crack and flake in the right-hand wall of the chimney give a fine jamming and laybacking pitch. It can be gained from the left (or direct which is nearer HVS). © Rockfax

βeta: Belay is tough to set up at the top, my mate had to go really far back to get any decent gear in.

βeta: Colossal, a couple of big guns offer ample protection for the crux section, grunting was most helpful during my ascent!
