16m. The oddly-named first crack in the face. The crux requires some beefy pinch-gripping then things ease.

Very enjoyable and a little strenuous.

Agree with the description. Got to keep moving cos the grips keep getting worse until you get to place a prized piece of gear a metre or 2 over decking out height.

Forgot the guide, thought, yeh give that a go, looks diff/v diff ish. Isn't.

I don't agree with Phil Lyon, there is loads of bomber gear placements! First piece in the horiz break is a bit higher than I'm used to but above that you can get loads in. Good climbing all the way up. Solid VS
