10m.

Rockfax Description
10m. The tough start gains the centre of the slab and a runner slot. Mantel then stretch/leap for the top. The tall have an unfair advantage (E2 5c-ish) and the short will struggle (E5 6b). © Rockfax

FA. Jonny Woodward 1977.

βeta: An oddity. Rather like a badly set climbing wall gimmick problem. I gave up on it. Was pleasant up until there.

βeta: Look away now to avoid unwanted (ahem)'beta': a Hex 5 (or 4, or 6?) goes a long way to alleviating those 'kicking the friend out' worries.

βeta: The start not to bad but maybe 6b if your short i fell off twice trying to jump, had to put a high insucure smear on to get there, brilliant route though no point in top roping

βeta: Whats how good the gear is got to do with if its E4 or not? The E grade is for difficulty aswell as just danger

βeta: spare a thought for woodward who is short and had to smear up that top slab in EB,s, probably was 6c for him amd what the hell did he have in those pockets,lets face it, it is a brilliant route and the grade doesnt seem to matter,expect 6b if your a short arse and expect 5c/6a for the start if you are lanky

βeta: I'm only 5'4, and thought the move to the top was 6b, I still found getting off the ground the hardest part though.

βeta: it might be a little easier if tall for the top but getting into the standing position in the pockets cancels advantage out.
