24m. A bit of an eliminate though with good positions, some interesting moves and low in the grade. Start up Hollybush Crack until above the prickly beast then climb the arete on the left passing a tricky overhang to gain the final exposed rib.

As it says a bit of an eliminate but superb moves. Would get more stars but for the even better HVSs around. Tried it on a boiling hot day and the finger crimps on the crux got mighty slippy.

Another corker. Moves are bloody excellent, think I even shouted that one was particularly good. Was getting a bit perplexed at the whole star grading system, thinking this was worth alot more than one.. then I did Saul's Crack.
