20m. Climb the face of the tower and the short crack to the overhang. Step left to pass this then move back right to finish up the well-positioned face above.
This routes down as a HVS 5a in the guide. Not that hard but bottled it just because of the exposure!
Really nice - worth a couple of stars and a pleasant relief from the polish of the more popular routes.
Nice route. Think one star is right at the moment, as the 'step left' sends you onto ivy covered rock, but it's got some great moves and a great position (and view), and the moves on the upper face still take it out of you!
Passing the overhang on the left now gives an unpleasant struggle up an ivy choked crack for a couple of moves. Probably better to avoid this and go straight up the face which is much cleaner (no change in grade).
