16m. A classic jamming crack. Gain the fissure awkwardly and follow it to its end. Finish up the exposed arete on the right - Flaky Wall Finish - or (more in keeping but less exciting) the thin crack on the left.

i think the move into the crack is prolly just 5a, but its great fun and very worthwhile

Superb, I thought the moves out to the arete at the top were amazing and contrasted well with the lower section, definitely the best way to finish the route!

Can't believe i never made a comment about this astounding route. Jam-tastic. I was also impressed by GingerKate's layback ascent on second.

I agree the moves into the crack are hard for 4c (even for the second, as I was). Brilliant route, can't wait to do it again.
