16m. A route with a good lower section but then it rather fizzles out. Climb the wall via couple of long reaches (big Friend to the left) to reach easier terrain. As the wall gets ever-narrower, escape becomes the obvious option.

a tight eliminate, but with some quality climbing. fairly straightforward, though slopy in places.

looked like very good climbing and couldn;t wait to have a go though it was a little off putting seeing the struggle some topropers were having with it. The gear looked reasonable, large friend low down but the massive wide break above the overlap is very flared and requires a crucial size 2 which i'd already placed lower down. arse biscuits!

Loved this route. After the first couple of moves the climbing eases a little but there aren't any easy moves till you top out. Go straight up all the way and don't escape. A really good route and safe as houses (take lots of friends).

I had the same problem as jon, except i couldn't find a size two on my harness although it was there. Involved standing up in a scared manner and bunging a big cam out left.
