16m. The stunning crack is a classic product of the 70s. The crack is relentless, but the gear is good throughout, stopping to place it is the only problem. If successful, it is time to head south for a crack at London Wall, which many think is about the same.
FA. Arthur Dolphin 1948. FFA. Pete Livesey 1973 (initially with 1 rest, then a little later, all free).

Totally brilliant - not really any hard moves on it - just lovely and sustained, with bomber gear pretty much all the way.

Inspired by the 80s photo of JD I fulfilled the long held ambition of a solo ascent this week. Suffice to say all went well!
