24m.

Rockfax Description
A popular route which is often found hard by people who climb it too directly. Start just left of the detached flake on the ledge. Climb up to the bulge then pull round virtually on the arete to gain the finger-traverse which leads back right. Move up and back left to gain the delightful finishing slab. © Rockfax

βeta: I loved this route, and I felt like it warranted E2 mainly because of the slab near the top which is tricky to protect. The polish lower down is nowhere near as bad - just for example - as that on the start of Sunlover.

βeta: Great route with a bit of everything - overhang on jugs, some technical climbing at the bulge and then a delicate slab above.
