12m. From the thin crack of Saliva, continue boldly to a large horizontal break, and the first useful runners. Finish up the steep wall above on jams and rounded holds.

Reachy but excelent, but I think bold for E3 since you'd deck from themove to the break and a mat won't help much.

Really nice route, "excelent", almost =). Lower wall is delectable, but steep upper section is still fun. Mild for 5c when you work it out but E3 for obvious reasons.

Seconded this, but nonetheless agree with Fiend. Thought it softish at 5c, but worth E3 for the deckout potential. Not E4, IMHSecondsOpinion. G

pretty soft i thought. but maybe cos i could reach straight from the good little hold to a decent hold below the break. good climb though. probably easier for the tall (over 6 foot)

The move to the break is considerably harder for the short, felt more like 6a with a bad fall potential. The top wall is enjoyable.

Didn't find the bold move reachy at all, and soft for 5c. A beautiful route, if you like this kind of thing.
