18m. Another great route at a (slightly) more amenable grade. The next long crack line gives excellent climbing with sustained and well protected climbing to a more difficult (or at least more pumpy) moves to the top.

Sustained perfectly describes this pitch. You have to try all the way, right to the very last move.

Another inspiring pitch! Quite reasonable at the grade, E2 more for the bold and fragile start than for the groove proper - good old fashioned jamming and wedging techniques allow you to rest most of the way up. Still, satisfyingly steep and butch.
