8m. The right-hand line with two pairs of strange pockets that provide both holds and awkward-to-thread runners.

Seemed derseving of a reachy symbol??? I downclimbed so can't be sure but guessing this might be 5c for anyone less than very tall (I'm 5,11) using the small crimp.

I'm 5'9" (and a half!) and found the move hard, had to undercut the poorer RH pocket and bringmy leg up into the LH one and then pull on the pebble. Wouldn't argue with 6a but if you're over 6a it may seem like 5a

The only gear on this route are 2 threads (one per pocket) - the top thread being particularly hard to place while hanging on! Pumpy.

I can reach between the pockets but found the crux placing the second thread. Wish I'd not bothered and just gone straight for the top

Having to make an intermediate move to reach the second pocket certainly felt 5c to me. Worth doing.

I am 5' 8" and although I was only seconding it managed the move ok. There is a crimp for your right hand below the top pocket (reachable easily!) and then you can get the top pocket with your left hand instead :-)

I'd suggest it's a seriously bad idea to miss out the second thread & go straight for the top. That's what I did & I soon regretted it when I was fighting to top out without falling off.
