8m. A fine micro-route, strenuous, with good gear to catch you if you blow the final moves. Trend right up the wall to a break (small Friends) then back left to crux moves out left, or go direct.

Superb route, solid gear just far enough away to make the virgin E1 leader nervous at the huge reach. One tip, reach as far to the right as you can because that sloper's worse than you think!
D'you mean the other right?
Not an ideal 1st E1 but a great little micro route.
Ideal 1st Leader E1????..... Not if you're a short arse, as the final reach is a long way for anyone below 5'8"!!!
Hindu definitely means his other right.
Er... The diagonal crack placement is the only thing to keep you off the ground if you fluff the last moves. I got to the usual place with hands on the ledge, lost it, and ended up only inches above my belayer's head.
At 5' 6" it was a struggle to get my foot on the crucial "ledge", never mind make the reach! But bomber gear at the move - can get 2 or 3 mid-size friends without taking all the holds. Word to the wise - don't carry more than a few friends and a sling. It's not worth the extra weight.
Yes, the final Friend placement will easily stop you from decking out, but not neccessarily from swinging into the wall round the corner. Ouch.
Top roped this offering twice - too scared to lead! Superb final move onto slopers then a giant heave onto ledge.
I found a friend and a sideways-on nut in the diagonal crack protects from landing on your belayer. Powerful little route with a scrappy pull up from the top LEFT holds and a hint of kneeage, or was that just me?
Just returned to this one. Still think it's great fun, but pretty much ran to the top this time.
Lead this on the hottest day of the year with a trouser leg on my head for protection....from the sun. Damn cool route!
An excellent boulder problem, just what you need to get yourself a little worked up. Protection is great, so just get on and do it.
Harder for me than any of the other E1s and E2s that I did this weekend.
Lead this route today in the wet! A bit after my mate lead 3 pebble in the rain ha ha what a fun day!
Do you need stamina to climb an 8 metre route that is described as an excellent boulder problem?
Well i'm not getting into the whole difference between stamina and power endurance and all that crap cos i can't tell the difference all i know is that i was really pumped just before the move out to the ledge and just couldn't get de-pumped enough to make the move.
