8m. The thin crack with a useful spike (nut either side or a tape over it) is technical and slippery but nice and safe.

4b/c climbing with no useful gear until the spike, didn't feel that safe to me! The crux move is well protected though.

Nice wee thing, the spike is great and the move off it somewhat extending (or, alternatively, thin).

Gaining height of the spike helps a lot.

If only this route was a couple of metres longer ! A one move wonder but a wonderful one move.

Microwires protect up to the spike, then overhead wires protect. Very safe but tiny footholds and technical moves. Good route
