22m. Technical thin face climbing is the preamble to the butch upper crack which is thankfully well protected. A good climb.

I'd say upper crack more technical than butch, with obvious challenge to reach and move up on a layaway.

Agree with the above comment. I have done this route a few times now and now having prior knowledge I find the initial crack at the start (5a in the BMC book) harder than the 5c upper crack!
