12m. By far the best route in the gorge and one of the best routes in the guide when dry. The climbing varies from dynamic lurches between jugs to sustained technical crimping and pocket pulling with a lactic infused crux high up.

I remember doing this in the early 90's and some holds crumbling on the last section. Was stiff 7b then, do easy 7b+ must be about right now.

I did this route again on Sunday. The route is in perfect condition and not crumbly at all. I will get around to cleaning off some of the neighbouring routes this week. There has been a lot of re-bolting and re-eqipping the belays in the gorge recently by John Elcock.
