8m. The crack in the left-hand side of the face; tricky to start.
The start move is probably only 4a the easy way, but this takes some thought. 4b for most which I guess counts as tricky!
Alternative start: step over from the big porthole on the left (after checking no-one is watching). Easy Diff this way, otherwise VD at least.
Easy Diff, I reckon. If you stand on the boulder and use the foothold on the left it goes fine. Or you can just jump your right foot straight into the crack :-) From there it's more like a Mod.
Jam a foot in! Must be hard if you can't get your legs that high.
There's a really nice direct start to this not using the boulder (no idea what grade) - start with a high layback in the crack, and get your feet beneath it on the high side wall. Work your hands up to a juggy hold, then get your right foot up onto the first ledge on the left in the crack. Then rockover and haul yourself up.
The start needs a bit of lateral thinking if you're too short to get your foot in the crack at first, good fun working it out.
