12m. A great route that strings you along with every move a little harder than the last one! Cracks in the side wall lead to small runners from where thin moves reach the crest, leaving only a tough rounded mantelshelf to glory. Photo page 349.

A fine route hopefully not too underrated with *** in the normal guide. Escalates nice and steadily move-by-move in difficulty after the start, HS-VS-HVS-E0-E1-E2. Final gear is good but a little fiddly.

Was probably just having a good day, but thought this was really straight forward. Top moves need a bit of thought but are very well protected from below. Didn't find any fiddly gear.
