24m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
1) VS 5a. The crack and flake lead awkwardly past an ancient chunk of angle-iron (hands off) to the ledge. Often done on its own, though Embankment 2 top pitch just to the right is worth a look as a way off the ledge.
2) 5c. Climb the thin fingery crack to a steep exit. © Rockfax

βeta: Second pitch is very hard, felt tough for 5c. Onsighted this but only just. Found this harder than Boulevard.

βeta: Having got my arse whupped by it as the last route of an otherwise excellent Saturday, I concur that it's bloody 'ard for anyone with man sized fingers. Top end 5c in my book.

βeta: I've now failed on this route twice. The crux move is certainly 5c and I doubt very much it is E1 to onsight.

βeta: Definitely my favourite crack on embankment - great for running laps on. Crux at 2/3rd height on 1st pitch

βeta: Thought the top pitch closer to 5c than 5b especially when compared to the other E1 5b routes on the Embankment slab.
