18m. Climb straight up the wall to the overlap (poor rest in a niche) then follow the thin pumpy crack above.

The start is the serious part. The technical crux higher up can be well protected with sinking wires.

Amazing route. The rest is hardly a rest, the start is quite run out but a dodgy cam 2 fits in the low flared crack. Keep pushing on at the top as the holds keep coming!

Hugely enjoyable and better than any so-called route at Millstone etc etc. Good holds, good gear, and just good fun. Good value at E2 as well...

probably is E3 (for being sustained) though low in the grade. start is not serious: the friend 2 placement while not textbook is unlikely to budge (certainly the 'rear' cams sit well). good gear and great moves (straightforward at 5c) throughout - enjoy...
