23m. This pumpy crack climb will sort out many a sport climber who has forgotten how to climb and place wires at the same time. Start up Wombat but break left across the slab then climb up past an old bolt to the overhang. Take a deep breath and launch up the crack. If you gain the break then you will find out how to finish.
