12m. Climb the fine slanting crack in the south-facing wall passing a juggy niche until a short traverse right leads to airy but easy ground.

Bench mark E2. a classic.

Varied climbing in a single pitch. 'Intereting' start, followed by steep, sinking finger jams, where you have to try, and finally a teetering exit. Always well protected.

Splendid. Fair at the grade and stars - not as mercilessly sustained as it looks from below, and safe, but lots of tricky bits punctuated by the rather stretchy finish.

Definitely worth the 3 stars, a good contrast between the pumpy jugfest, jamming and delicate top!

Less-intimidating to climb than to look at! and you don't actually have to jam either <grin>. Looooong move at the top, just to keep things interesting. Great (even with the cobwebs)!
