14m. Excellent and exposed. Climb over a flake to a ledge (awkward) then take the slabby ramp and thin crack (crux) on the left to ledges. Tackle the strenuous layaway flake-crack to more ledges then choose a finishing crack, the right-hand one being both a little harder and also a little better.

A lovely long route althogh after the initial crack I ended up climbing a narrow slabby wall with a thin crack on its right side. The climbing above was on some fantastic holds in very exposed positions.

Better and harder than it looks from below, a good route

I thought the crux maybe warranted 4c, certainly trickier than it looks. Superb route, interesting throughout - make sure you do the right hand finish!

Good route. Definitive guide's grading of HS 4b seems about right
