15m.

Rockfax Description
A classic of the 60s, which was way ahead of its time.
1) 6b, 15m. A boulder problem start leads to some fiddly flakes and small wires - hard to place. Move up to a peg then step right and make a long stretch for the undercut. Pull over and climb more easily to a cave belay, medium cam useful. Abseil off (indifferent belay) or safer and for the full tick ...
2) 5a, 10m. Step right to an easy, but well-positioned groove and the summit meadows. © Rockfax

FA. Tom Proctor, Geoff Birtles 1967. An awesomely impressive ascent for the time - the initial roof is probably a V5 or V6 boulder problem..

βeta: The pegs are a bit dodgy but they are between the 2 crux's on easier ground and you should be all right. There is an in-situ sling that you can clip to protect the reachy crux.
