20m. The steep groove has a hard finish. Belay on the top.

Now has bolts and a lower off, and cobwebs, and one less hold than it had before. pretty stiff, I'd give it 6a+. Has a crucial block in the top groove just waiting to come out.

Reasonably relieved to find it gets 6b+ in Dave musgrove's summer report!! Not going as soft as I thought I was then.

Even taking into account the warped logic of retrobolting - why has this route been bolted?
