20m. The soaring chimney is usually avoided! The bell-shaped upper section is the crux, good gear is available in the depths of the rift - though it is hard to place, especially with a helmet on!

Try back and footing up the outside of the crack- it worked for me and wasn't too bad. If you get caught in the deep recesses.... heaven help you

Great fun - requires a committed (i.e. physically, not gear wise) approach. Back and footing worked for me too.
