14m. The straight crack has an awkward initial section but is easier above.
Pleasant climbing (after a tricky start). Can be laced with gear, and makes a good first lead.
Don't be seduced into starting on the left by the big step.It is much easier to start on the right.
Awkward is not the way to describe the start unless you have big boots and massive hands place a big friend high in the crack from the block on the left and then layback the right handside of the crack, to gain mortal sized jams.
A fun climb. All you've got to do on the start is smear. The friction's pretty good, and there are a couple of pebbles.
The start isnt that tricky, it was easy to use the slopy foothold on the left (around knee-height) and fist-jam the crack. Although my second couldnt jam with her small hands and had to do some osrt of dyno I think. Nice climb.
Solotastic. V0 for the first two yards, simple climbering thereafter. Leave your rack in the bag.
Mate had his leg in a pot for this, said it helped cos he got a leg jam using the thickness of the cast to make it doable :p
Easiest to layback the start.
I found it easy to jam and twist my left foot and smear my right foot whilst doing a mild layback. A shame the crux isnt higher up for a bit more fun
Nice climb not to technical. Good for beginners to leading.
My first lead, so earns a certain affection....
Brilliant route. Better than the polished 3* VDs at the popular end.
