38m.

Rockfax Description
The eye-catching line first seen on arrival at the crag is as good as it looks. Start at the groove/flake system just right of the huge block at the base of the crag. Climb flakes to an overhang at
10m. Traverse left and gain the base of stepped corners above.
Move up and then head out right to a crack and go up this until
it is possible to regain the upper corner and finish up it. © Rockfax

βeta: Barely even read the guide and went for this as I thought it looked nice. This is HVS 5a - you don't have to commit to crimps with no feet on a slippy limestone traverse with dodgy gear at VS 4b ffs! Nice enough route though, went a bit too high at the bottom traverse
