14m.

Rockfax Description
14m. The centre of the slab is climbed passing a hole to a ledge then a finish up the face above and slightly right. Good climbing that is poorly-protected. A Friend 3.5 is useful near the top. © Rockfax

βeta: I thought the top was solid 4c (but with ok gear just below your feet) and lower down 4b ish. The whole route is in fact protectable though (without a single cam!) if you look carefully. Middling VS.

βeta: Maybe JUST 4b but feels in-balance throughout so wasn't as fazed by the shit gear as have been on other VS 4bs.

βeta: Fairly straightforward padding, although every piece of gear I placed could be summed up with the word 'crap'.
