8m. Climb a crack to a ledge then step out left and balance up this to a horizontal break, runners and an easier finish. Not too bad for 5 bee.

Better and much more feasible than it looks - there ARE holds out left, giving very neat wall climbing with a bold feel due to the distant runners in the crack on the right.

A little gem of a route. Feels committing moving left off the ledge but once you go for it some smart moves on edges lead to a final stretch for the break.

my first ever E1 lead, scary but that was a long time ago
