18m. The classical wide fissure is climbed by the left-hand corner with a step left onto The Pulpit if a rest is needed. Gain the right-hand crack a little higher. The right-hand crack can be followed throughout at HS but the gangly can bridge the whole affair. Well-protected throughout.

Beautiful route if you can get on it. Often found full of top roped groups. My first ever lead which may explain why I thought it felt intimidating. Definitely S 4a though.

A little polished at the start but a nice route. I'd love to see someone bridge the whole thing and still retain the ability to father children afterwards.

Great in the dark!
And my second did bridge it (with a headtorch) - now that was funny to watch. The crux for that method was getting back down at the top!

Sustained but with good gear. Brilliant.
