18m. The best lower grade route on the cliff climbs the huge central groove. The crucial bulge is climbed using a highly suspicious looking foothold on the left wall.

Judging by the filth, this route doesn't see much traffic, which is a real shame. Fantastic climbing.
Takes a while to dry. (If you use the crack, but you can back and foot up the slab facing left)

Unfortunately a bit green & slimy in the central section, but still a fabulous route - well worth doing.

Bit of fun!

Very dirty at the moment. Jamming in a damp mossy crack and smearing on lichen. Somehow it still manages to be good fun.
