18m. One of gritstone's finest. The leaning start up to the prominent horn proves tricky but the difficult and delicate pull from the mid-height horizontal break tends to stop more attempts (large cams). Zig-zag up the final wall.

Just superb...may feel tough for E3 6a, especially as the start is regarded as 6b!!

Maybe my biggest lead! When I first did this route, it just sapped me for the best part of an hour. I don't think I've been as pumped since, atleast not when succeeding a route.
