16m. One of the Peak's very best jamming cracks, the crag is worth a visit just to do this route. Climb the crack though a host of overhangs!

because the jams are so good, it doesn't feel all that strenuous, yeah...best jamming crack on grit.

best route of its genre on grit, a rather harrowing solo though as i would of ended up at the resevoir

Incredible route and much more horizontal than it looks in the photos. One of the best E2s on grit.
