22m. Follow the strenuous thin crack in the wall to a possible stance and block belay. Pull boldly over a bulge and climb a groove and follow this to a capping roof, which is climbed on 'surprising' holds. Save some big gear for the final section.
First pitch at least 4c, possibly 5a. Hard moves and then a dirty, loose finish. Second pitch - no protection at all up short, nasty, unobvious wall of about 4b. Whole route winds up to being much harder than Crack and Corner. (VS 4c?)
have u got the wrong route, Mr Gordon Stainforth? I led that second pitch and placed eight or nine bits of bomber gear. definfitrly a HS 4a, highly recommended with a top quailty finish (look for the hidden hold).
Both pitches felt 4c - the first crack being strenous, the final one being just plain hilarious. Good gear throughout, no sign any any "nasty" wall
