10m. Bridge the leaning corner (don't push too hard on the flake) and then step left to reach the eponymous fissure, thankfully above the wide and potentially awkward lower section.

I tried to solo this as I thought is was 'S' but backed of and lead it. A tricky move at HS4a I guess. Glad I lead it as it felt a wee bit insecure.

I guess I should have read the description as well as looking at the topo - I tried to layback up the corner (pretty hard!) then traverse the face on slopers without bridging - ended up backing off (it was meant to be a warm-up!), no wonder I thought it was hard for something that was supposed to be part of a diff!
