14m. Bold and delicate. Climb the slab to the break (and runners) then crimp on to find a finish up the flaky crack above.
A good head climb for severe. The moves are easy, but the run out great.
Glad to see it gets HS in Rockfax, it's S in Staffordshire Grit and I thought that was a bit steep. In fact, I backed off it at the beginning of the day, but then got drawn back at the end. It's actually a lovely route, got a bit of everything from a bold start, to a slab on little ledges, to a smear and mini mantle, to a layback corner. Beta......... You can get a runner in the break *before* you traverse across (not at the end of it), then it protects you on the traverse back too. At least that's how I did it!
A nice climb, but I didn't find the slab part that bold. Then again I love slabs with little edges!
I used to solo this regularly, I think it's much easier than Damascus Crack
