25m.

Rockfax Description
The trade route at Split Rock Quarry is a brilliant classic. Start at a small, shallow cave at ground level. Hard moves up the crack sprouting from the cave lead to an easing at 6m. Follow the steepening crack past two threads and climb the wall above to a large niche, bolt. Move up and left out of the niche on big holds to a small corner and follow this on more good holds to a move right at its end to finish. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Start at the small alcove in the center of the crag, from there follow the large, obvious crack to half height and continue up to a ledge/shattered cave 5m from the top. Either follow the groove above straight up or use the left arete (slightly easier.)

βeta: Intimidating. Congrats to Snr Noble for bagging the onsight. I followed after on lead and bagged it. The start can be a crimpy beast. The thorny bush is an obstacle to avoid judging by the cuts on my legs
