20m. A good direct finish which includes the last move of Wurlitzer that seems easier with this approach. Not in current guidebook.

Hint: unclip the last bolt below the start of the roofs to avoid terminal rope drag! Shorties will have a hard time on this one...

Great route .. sustained approach to the bulge at the top. Very long reach required to make the top crux move. Reachy symbol required
Jason - 19/Jun/00

Contrary to the two previous comments a short (ish) person I know did this route with no problems by using a hold out left. It does make for a fingery move but as long as you don't attempt the reach then it is still possible at the grade of 6c.

Definitely harder than 6c for the short.
Al - 09/Jun/02

The finishing jug looks like it has recently snapped off, there's a good flat edge left but the move is very slightly harder now.

I agree, there must have been rock fall, i did the neibouring route wurlitzer jukebox@7a and found the last move desperate. Even after a rest it took a couple of efforts.

Considerably better finish than the regular route - out in space on jugs (rather than traversing on polish).
