20m. The Line of bolts that once forced its way through the blank wall have gradually come out to produce a spectacular free pitch. Start up the flake to make an enormous reach out and up in the direction of the break. After arranging some micro tricams & wires in the crozily pockets, step left and tackle the vague overhanging wave feature. Follow this to the upper headwall (skyhook) and an exposed crux of matchstick crimps. Continue leftwards more easily in a staggeringly bold finale.
