10m. The narrow rift in the main angle is a well-protected struggle and the leftward exit is a pig; the best advice is to try staying high. Often green early in the season or after rain, in which case it is worthy of a manky HS 4c.

Ahh, well, Its my favourite chimney see.
Definitely a severe, bags of gear in small cracks all the way up. BUT its very condition dependant. Can you justify HS for the 50% of the time the top exit is slimed up?

A typical narrow Severe Chimney. The struggle to gain the last bit of height for the exit is no more difficult than the section below and not at all unexpected at the grade. The actual step left is considerably easier.
