18m.

Rockfax Description
18m. Climb the centre of the front face direct, starting over the butch overhang, crossing the diagonal cracks and finishing with a flourish at a notch in the final narrow wall. A bit of a non-line but with some fine climbing if you are strict. © Rockfax

Mike505 5 May, 2018 Lead dog After a few failures on the overhang (pulling the ropes each time) I finally made it through. I climbed to the rounded breaks and got a little psyched out as I couldn't find any gear. I asked for a rope to be dropped to me and in the mean time dug out some dirt out from the break and found a slot for a small alien and a wire which spured me on to the next break, gear was found but I didn't think it good enough to be worth the risk. The rope was lowered and the top out moves were sandy but not bad. Upon abseiling to strip the route I realised I could have made a much better and pretty bomber job with the last placement had I not been quite so shaken.
