16m. The long slanting crack is stormed on solid jams to its end and a swinging escape out right (once it was aided on fat wooden wedges). A great pitch and worth seeking out - it's just a pity it doesn't go all the way to the cliff top.

Utterly desperate at the grade. I've done many easier E2s.

Very few solid jams and a lot of slightly too small for hand jams too big for finger jams kind of moves.

Just when you thought it was all over and an easy exit beckons, the break comes as a very big dissapointment !

Hard work but not desperate at the grade.
