23m. A magnificent trip up this massive wall. Although it is given a sport grade a rack of small and medium wires will be found useful by most as will double ropes. The climbing is remarkably sustained and with a crux right at the top.

This route is now fully bolted. We need to take an old one out from the top. Ian

Climbed this with the middle section of Mid Air Collision which is a superb 7a+ IMO

I found the line of this route rather confusing. I thought it went up the groove to the right of the middle section of Mid Air Collision - but there are no bolts - just an ancient stuck wire. Am I wrong or has the route been straightened to the 7a+ that Lee Proctor describes?
