18m. Brilliant climbing, despite the dodgy drilled holds. Make a very hard move to leave the block and gain the dodgy flakes (gear includes a spike, lassoable from below, which protect the moves). Then 6a crimpy wall climbing gains better holds and the top before the pump catches you. Finish up and right (5a) or escape off left.
FA. Mick Fowler 1976. Climbed by Ed Drummond in 1973 with two skyhooks on wrist loops for aid. The tiny holes he drilled are still there.

Lassoing the spike or tring to flick in a nut from below is bloody hard and the placement seems pretty marginal. The top wall at least has positive holds.
