35m. Another fine wall climb with great climbing and a sequency crux by the pegs. The fixed gear can be backed up with wires but the route is still a bold undertaking. High in the grade. Incorrectly described in West Country Climbs! The original line climbs up at the first spike NOT the second (Fay)spike.

Great Wall Climbs of the UK , Very good routes in the UK , West Country Climbs , 100 or so good E6s - aye Caff , South West in Extremis
