12m. The crack gives a good and well protected pitch. The final overlap can be climbed direct, or bypassed slightly more easily.

climbed it loads of times and is a great warm up for the bigger routes. Soild runners all the way and a good easy practice to finger jamming if you stick to the crack

Better than Parker's

Another 3* quarried grit finger crack! Polished but don't let that put you off...Did Tighes arete the same night and thought this was the better in terms of quality. 4c moves mean it's all there (and more if you want to divert from using just the crack), you just gotta use it...Crux is way up at the overlap....Enjoy!

Sustained 4c excellance with bomber protection,top quality VS routes.

Nice easy gear placements lower down but the way I did the top section is far from 4c, I'd say 5b maybe! A fairly big reach from an undercut. Perhaps I should get a guidebook next time!

Very well protected, great route for VS leaders who need some finger crack climbing practice.
