14m. The deep groove gives steep and awkward bridging past a series of bulges. Well-protected throughout.

I'm suprised that the voting for the grades gives 3c, I found it pretty hard for 4a, although I am a bit out of practise at the moment. I thought I was coming off several times... at some points awkward is an understatement (especially as the midway crack is a bit green)! However, I managed to do it all without bridging, so maybe that's where I went wrong. Despite all that though, it was thoroughly enjoyable!

Sarah- your comments almost exactly echo mine!

nice route, plenty of bridging if you want it. I think S4a is about right, although I did make a bit of a meal of the top section. Elbows, knees the lot, it had been a hard week.
