18m. Climb the wide crack then trend left to a ledge. From here, climb right and then left again following the best holds to an airy finish up the final section.

Poorly protected? There's a bomber cam and nut just below your feet. Lovely top moves, slightly let down by the fact the lower section is about VDiff in standard.

Very good, top-end VS Id say for being steep, not a place to hang around and quite bold at the top. Easy lower down though yes.

The top is hard for VS. Although the pro is close You'd hit the ledge if you fell off.

It's a lovely line and most of the route is very steady, but the top moves are hard 4c and the protection is not good at that point. Should be HVS 4c.
