20m. The continuous crack-line up the right-hand side of the face gives a fine, well protected pitch with enough large gear. It is all just a touch to wide for comfort.

The crux is definitely not well-protected unless you have very large gear - a no 3 camalot doesn't even come close. Would be HS 4b with huge cams/hexes, probably VS 4b without. Quite green and slippery near thye bottom, improves with height.

I didn't have anything larger than a no. 3 camalot, and definitely wouldn't give it higher than HS 4b...

Probably me being an old git but I thought that this was a a good VS with a Camalot 5. Without it I would have found it very scary. Great line.
