12m.

Rockfax Description
12m. Approach via the roofed in hanging groove to join The Mincer. Follow this through the bulge then from a large chockstone runner (or use it as a belay) sketch right across the slight weakness in the slab, to reach the finger crack and a short sprint to safety. Modern boot rubber is a big help, though it was five years before it was first used on this one! © Rockfax

βeta: The tat needs replacing on the chockstone as showing a bit of the core for what I could tell, but adequate placement instead, unless you are bailing from there. Didn’t have any means to replace it, as was too busy getting tenderised by the mincer!
