12m. The crack starts from a sentry box and gives good climbing to a naughty finish up the widening and undercut crack. It is possible to avoid the last few moves by traversing the break leftwards to give a one star HS 4b.

The final offwidth is often avoided by shuffling rightwards to finish up Right-hand Crack, making a more balanced route.

But the final bulge tops off the route most excellently

The off width finish would be graded at least HVS in the Peak. Gear beta warning. Take a 4 friend and/or a 5 camalot for the last metre.
