16m. Powerful moves access the prominent niche at 4m (overhead gear). Continue up the flake of 'the flange' then the steep slab on rounded holds to a final short crack.

A tad artificial but a good start and good sloper finish with some longish reaches.

thought i was cruising on the start untill you try and get onto the small ledge above the overhang. Was forced to wear a helmet by partner on this climb and as my foot slipped and the rope flipped me head first and a nut pinged i was mighty glad i had, just stopped short of the deck but did bash the hell out of myself

Pinged my only nut hanging lifting my foot hanging off the ledge. I can obviously only finger jam in desperation. Underrated route I reckon, fair at the grade.
