20m. A mega-classic, and pumpier than life itself, though at least this one has plenty of runners once you reach the start of the crack proper. Climb to the thin crack using pockets and follow it with great difficulty to the pigeon poo and collection of tat under the roof. All that remains between you and glory is the E5 roof-crack. Mega.

Plenty of runners once the actual crack is reached btw!

Absolutely brilliant - couldn't get much better than this! Better than London Wall for the fact that is has a variety of sizes and angles and much more of an "outing" due the varied nature. Definitely one to go back and do again and again.
