12m. The left-hand side of the slab is a bold undertaking passing a ledge then two tiny left-facing flakes. Often climbed with side-runners (not too high!) at a friendlier E3.

Crux felt quite commiting but generally a very pleasant and worthwhile climb!

did it with side runner and it felt fine if still bold at the top. V good climbing though.

Absolutely fabulous slab climb, IMO, at mid-E3 with side-runner. Great Slab routes are going to get polished as hell if top-roped repeatedly, so for those of us not up to the E5/6 solos, the on-sight of Heartless Hare is wonderful. So your rope doesn't get snagged, side runner needs to be just above the heather you can see in RF guide (my excuse for it being so high!), but this is still a committing lead as the crux section is quite sustained and the slide/fall/pendulum from the top of the slab would be very unpleasant. I thought is was 6a, or maybe very sustained 5c for the key 5m section, but it is a superb sequence of moves with little respite.

or just wait till you don't need an overly high side runner and solo it.
