20m. The dramatic fissure splitting the back wall of the shady recess of the Alcove is a steep and well-protected tussle.
For steep read overhanging by a good 2m. The gear is good but is not as easy to place as you might think from the ground.
Most excellent mon amis. Not really a tussle, only (!) overhanging a metre, and the gear is fine to place (may struggle sans jams). But just a really good strenous fun route.
enjoyed when i finished but good so pumped and knackered. that slight overhang is so pumpy.think would have been better if i had climbed it better, good gear just tiring to place. i dont trust all the rock here too as a huge block moved while climbing under the viaduct, scary!!
It's not that pumpy: I suggest you should go to the wall more often! Technically, I don't think it's any more than 4C!
This is a really cool route, I really enjoyed it, lots of nice holds and gear.
