12m. This wide crack starts off easily but has a hard move to pass the small overlap before easing again.

Easy start then a fine layback to get over the overlap. The overlap looks quite daunting, but a lovely flake allows an easy layback. Once past the overlap, just continue the crack to the top. A bit fluttery if you're leading.

Graded HVD in 1951, Severe in 1964, VS 4c 1989, VS 5A in 2002. Is this grade drift? or has the route got harder. I don't think so. We believe what we are told. I'm suggesting this route is very easy, if you adopt a confident approach. By the way, though the route is over in a moment the moves are very nice.
