14m. The crack in the centre of the wall cuts through an overlap and is a well protected (small wires) gem, the best in the quarry and (almost) the equal of Millstone's HVS classics.

Look away now if you don't want the beta... The mini overlap is perfectly protected by a 1.5 friend (hope i remember that size right!) and the top crack has plenty of small wire placements. Take a few 1, 2, and 3, possibly even smaller than that. It is a lovely route for a quarry!

Good for a first HVS lead - this is easier and better protected than a lot of VS's.

A rose amongst thorns, a tad more interesting now that the peg has been ripped. Good outing.
