9m. The roof crack to the right is a battle. The use of knees, and loss of copious skin, are all to be expected!

Fantastic moves out to the lip. Easy (for the grade) if you like jamming.

Easy(ish)across the roof, hard to turn the lip. A gret route.

Entertainingly acrobatic - Hard across the roof, easy(ish) to turn the lip. Quite refreshing having a route where cutting loose on handjams is a very viable method (no knees). Worth it's extra star.

no real need to jam in the roof, only in the finishing crack.

I still hold to my statement that anything that can be jammed can be lay-ed back. Great powerful moves on good holds in the crack out to the lip, then a pause and much harder layback to get the left foot on.

For a route with such a description, it shouldn't be this much fun... but is ;-)
