14m.

Rockfax Description
14m. Excellent climbing up the middle of the face, steep and stretchy and with plenty of buckets to swing about on. The finish feels a bit bolder and a long way off the ground and sadly the crucial runner placement is now very worn. © Rockfax

βeta: Um, use a bigger cam? Yes the front of the slot's only 2cm thick rock, but the gap behind it is still good enough to hold a large cam... Say 3.5?

βeta: Because the rock is poor in the slot by the crux. I think it would be rather hard to not notice that.

βeta: I don't get it... Why does everyone complain about the protection on this route? I thought it was like climbing on bolts! Fantastic moves, though it's over very quickly, as the finish is basically gained via two big moves from the ledge. Keep those heels hooking!

βeta: Very worthwhile despite the crumbly rock and brevity of the crux....which happens to be an awesome technical move. Finish is nice though. Reasonably protected with a diverse rack, although best to be careful and climb it sooner rather than later.
