14m. A tough proposition at the grade taking in some brilliant moves on perfect rock. There is a lower-off at the 6th bolt but it is possible to continue up the wall, and small corner above, for which a rack will be needed. Alternatively (better) link up with the upper section of Cement Head (fully bolted).

Given the votes, is 7c more appropriate?

If you stop at the first lower-off it's probably hard 7b+, but 7c if you finish up Cement Head.
Fantastic route, excellent moves and well worth 3*.

This route is now fully bolted to the top of the crag taking in the excellent groove of War of the Worlds. Probably 7c?

Definately worth 7c to the top belay on War of the Worlds. A fantastic climb, a must do at the grade.
