12m.

Rockfax Description
12m. The north-facing wall is arduous and bold. From the top of the crack leap out right to a crappy, creaking flake. Stuff some gear behind this if you want, but it has been tested and it doesn't hold! When prepared, climb the centre of the wall direct to a finishing mantel guaranteed to focus the mind. © Rockfax

βeta: On-sighted it. Thinks it's E6. Met Seb Grieve (for 1st time about 2 days later) he also reckoned standard E6. But can always argue about grades. Must be true though "how do I onsight E7?" A: "Do an E6 and wait for the upgrade" Jon - what dyno? tricky slappy move but didn't do a dyno anywhere. Mainly because I can't dyno. Maybe I just got lucky with figuring out the top mantel (VERY) quickly

βeta: I have upgraded this to E7 in the new guide. I'll leave the comments and votes as they are though.
