25m. Steep climbing up the left-hand of the two cracks under the abseil. It can be dirty but is good when clean and dry.

Nothing realy between this and 'But incest is best' both have good gear, are strenuous and very polished. Worth doing if not a lot of time or weather looks poor. Otherwise there are plenty of better routes at these grades worth finding.

Good climbing and certainly felt like E2 but I was pretty unfit at the time.

Agree that it's very much a route to do if you're on limited time, but still I enjoyed it very much.

Hard work!

Thought this was quite nice despite the polish; good flowstone, steep but good holds. Think is E1 really, an enjoyable climb for sure.
