22m. A fine climb with a technical lower wall which leads to a fingery roof and excellent headwall. Not in current guidebook.

Mostly a pleasant 6b route except for the one hard move involving a awkward, burly and reachy use of my arms rather than any fingers. I may, as usual, have missed the more elegant approach.

You didn't miss anything - this needs a long reach symbol! The roof has slight crimpiness but the heinous span to get stood up is the real issue. A good route but very cruxy, this perhaps *slightly* marrs what is otherwise a sweet F6b+.

going to agree with fiend couldn't make the reach to the break

Reach symbol not needed. I'm 5'10" with a negative ape index - its only necessary to get your feet up into the right position to get the height. The route is a well balanced Fr6c without a really cruxy section.

Didn't find it reachy at all and i'm 5'8". Fiend must just have crap technique;-)
