16m. The rift in the centre of the face is a classic two pitch battle. The lower squeeze can be avoided by starting up Overhanging Groove - a cop-out - and helmets jam in the final narrow section.
No way is this route a VS, unless you also upgrade all the Almscliff VSs to HVS!
Agreed this is a crazy upgrade.
Agreed definately HS 4b, 3 stars. Benchmark classic. Stick to the direct start.
Unless this has got harder in the last few years, this is overgraded at VS 4c. HS 4b seems quite alright.
