10m. The wide left-leaning crack gives a more arduous approach to the niche. 'Old School' climbing at its best.

I think the star has been carried over from the old guide. There is nothing worth a star on this climb, it is a green pile of poo (quite literally ask the pidgeons). If you enjoy a struggle up a crack without grace, skill or dignity, this is the climb for you. Don't know why it says it's a hand-jammer either, it's squirming body jams and then good holds, nothing small enough for a hand jam. To add some balance to this comment, the travese off this route is fun.
