44m.

Rockfax Description
A fine route with good climbing and a reachy couple of moves just before easy ground is gained. The best route on the crag - possibly. Make sure to take a decent sized rack especially if you intend to do it as a single pitch. Start under the soaring groove.
1) 4c, 12m. Follow the small groove to a stance on the ledge.
2) 5a, 30m. Climb the well-defined groove-line running up the left side of the main face. © Rockfax

βeta: Something seems to have changed on the lower part of the route and the formerly straightforward start now boasts a hard (5a) move.

βeta: A great route, with the crux at the top! Also, good photo-op from the grassy ledge halfway up on the left.
