11m. A very good route following a line of flakes and cracks in the wall with good protection.

Did this yesterday. Beware the block 1/3 of the way up. It dropped 3 inches whilst I was stood on it, (slight rise in pulse rate) and now feels like it may drop out anytime. Stand to one side belayers.

A nice route and distinctly less hostile than some of the HVS 5a's at this crag. Possibly VS 5a, safe but technical.

Very good, well protected HVS. The climbing is interesting from the time you enter the first groove, all the way to the top.
