20m. Devious but quite superb. It is sensible to place a runner in the start of the regular route if you don't want to face a massive pendulum if you muff the crux moves. Follow the diagonal crack as for Nutcracker out to a poor rest then climb a shallow groove and the crack that runs back to the right to reach the pumpy crux of Fern Hill. Follow this to the top.

Rubbish! Don't preplace the runner, fire along that horizontal break like your ass is on fire. Get in some wires then slow your heart rate back to sub 200. Nice one Ron extending the pleasure of one of grits best routes
