22m. The faint crack line splitting the centre of the wall gives great sustained climbing. Not in current guidebook.

Very Sustained 6b+ - excellent. Again the hold/foothold is quite loose and friable.

*Warning - First bolt to clip on is loose, need to be re-tightened*

Only 6b with very definite crux sequence, rest sustained 6a - nice route.

After doing Brain Candy, thought this was 6b+, hard and sustained middle section to get the 2nd break.

I agree this is too sustained to be 6b, 6b+ but low in the grade. well worth the stars.
