12m. The left-hand of the near parallel cracks was a good effort for its day. A huge cam or two will be found useful by most. The gorse bushes can be a pain in more ways than one!

Thanks to the BMC the gorse has now gone, but the offwidth top crack remains intimidating. I sneaked off to Gardener's Pleasure.

Myself and Dave Greg it a severe pruning a couple of years ago (no thanks to the BMC) - it soon grew back!

No doubt it will again, but BMC did great job negotiating with landowner who's apparently wary of climbers lopping vegetation.

Got up it this time. Still worth VS I reckon. (But I don't have a huge cam!)
