22m. The wall left of the deep corner with its thin crack system could have done with a few more aided ascents before it was finally free-climbed. The crux is reaching the overlap although above this it keeps on coming.

Technical climbing, most enjoyable

I found the crux to be getting to the overnhang.

Definately agree Adrian. Very technical up the thin crack but well protected. Just make sure you've got something in reserve for the section above overhang which is not that hard, but run out. This was the last grit route I ever climbed in 1995. Moved to South Coast on same day and haven't been on grit since.

Crux is definitely getting overlap. RP2 fits here. Top section is good, long, positive moves
