20m. A worthwhile climb. Get into the hanging groove and exit right below the overhang to reach a short crack that leads to ledges. Climb the face above, finishing up a short crack.

Enjoyable step right to leave the groove with good handholds on a flake. Looks harder than it is but might be upseting for a first foray into the grade.

Where is this meant to finish? There's a ledge after the face/crack where you could walk off to the left. But I carried on up the slab to the top of the crag, about 7m without any gear, which seemed a little harsh for the grade!
20m as in Rockfax suggests it goes to the top, but 14m as in the BMC would just get you to the left-hand walk off.
