14m. The thin (and anciently chipped) crack is technical as far as the first decent hold, and easier above. Often soloed, as placing runners is hard work and blocks a semi-crucial finger jam.

I enjoyed climbing this line . I thought that it is a safe E2 because all of the hardest moves are at the start with top section being quite easy.

6B to place the runner off the thumb sprag and 6A to do the move ?

I agree with Simon. Probabaly easier to solo, difficulties are all over once you've got past where Vealey is in the photo opposite
