18m. Climb up the wall just right of Limbo with a hard move to reach two juggy pockets on the right. Continue up left of these to the roof. Pull straight over this on big, but slightly loose, holds.

I thought the hard move was after the 2 juggy pockets, not before?

Me too, the holds were pretty crimpy and small, don't forget the double knee bar hands off rest in the top roof

The technical but reasonably well-protected moves before and after the pockets make this a worthwhile outing in my view. Just don't hang onto the sanctuary of the pockets for too long!

The CC guide gives this E3 and I think this is a more accurate grade - hanging around to place gear at the pockets is very pumpy and the crux is immediately above this - if you don't place gear here you're going a long way.
