12m. The searing thin crack that forms a direct start to the last climb is fiercely technical and has gear which is hard to place.
FA. Paul Mitchell with pre-placed runners, hence the name. 1981

The line on the digram shows it traversing left far higher than it actually does.
Incidently the first ascent without preplaced gear was by Keith Sharples.

Essentially a disappointing direct start to Brightside! The continuation crack is an obvious challenge for the next generation, which would be worth 2 stars.
