24m. Probably the biggest roof pitch on grit and truly magnificent. From directly above Technical Slab, place loads of gear at the back of the roof then attack it at its widest point, using the fragile glued flake with care. From the hole (spike runner and hands-off rest possible), pull back to the vertical using tiny rugosities (crux) and climb the wall more easily. Photo page 12.
