22m. The most popular route at Barcud, and with good reason. Start just left of the recess and climb leftwards up flakes to a break below the headwall. The thin cracks above lead to the top.

Rather unprotected in it's lower reaches, though the climbing at that point is 4c at most. Crux is well protected, and the line is delightful.

Great route, all the holds are positive, plenty of gear after a slightly comitting start. But even with an incoming tide, waves crashing below and the rock a bit damp it didn't feel any harder than HVS 5a

A nice route that is fine at it's given grade - generally good holds if a bit stretchy between some of them, generally good gear if a bit spaced.

Don't understand these comments, the route has bomber wires all over it, and gives lovely steep slab climbing on excellent holds - three stars?

Really nice climb. Positive holds, good gear, low in the grade. Shame it's all over so quickly..

Perhaps the one of the most aesthetically pleasing routes ever. A soft E1, but fully 3*.
