24m. The crack running up the left-hand side of the orange scar has some of the best climbing here though it is spoilt by the grubby exit. It has difficult, but well-protected, moves to pass the overhang where wilting arms is a common phenomenon. Above this the difficulties ease. Select a way on carefully.

Excellent route, small rock fall to the right in 2006 has not changed the grade or quallity of the route.

Perhaps that should be "select a way off carefully?". Or does it refer to the dodgy blocks at the start? Anyway, you'd better be happy with hand jamming for this one! Another excellent route.
