12m. The superb jamming crack that smacks you in the eye when you enter the quarry, short lived but near perfection whilst it lasts.

Classic crack climbing i.e. fairly tough, an irresistable line.

Lots of small but positive edges around the first, narrow, section of the crack. Crux is well protected. A fantastic climb.

This climb is fantastic! I've found a similar looking line in Roundbarn that with a clean could become a classic too!

This has got rather polished over the 15 years since I last did it. Well protected and short-lived but must be approaching 5b technically now.

Very enjoyable, fun to try doing it without jamming.

Great route. I enjoyed leading it even though I normally avoid strenuous jamming cracks like the plague!
