17m. A mini-classic that climbs the line of thin rightward-leaning cracks up the tallest section of the wall. Move up to the wide break and pull onto the wall next to a good small wire placement. The thin cracks give sustained climbing all the way, with good protection. Photo page 118.

Sustained and committing rather than actually hard. Quite a voyage, that requires a bit of care and attention, although perhaps not refined enough to deserve 3 stars. A bit of seepage low down can be easily outwitted.

as fiend says, pumpy but no stopper moves. Bit crumbly at the top, maybe 2*

A dirty pile of quarried toss. Two / three stars? No way.
