22m. Balancy and technical climbing on superb rock (when clean). Difficult moves lead to the first break and a thread. Head up the wall (peg) and continue to the finish of Unreal.

Why does this get the flutter symbol? It is decently protected.

cool climbing, with generally good gear if a bit spaced.

There is gear between the break and peg which is okish but not bomb-proof. The description is obviously wrong i.e. at start climb past theard to break.
