22m. The best route here and worth calling in for. Delicate, sustained and elegant moves, throughout with enough gear to allow the experience to be enjoyed .

A beautiful route - delightfully technical and immediately appealing. Fair at the grade - the crux is quite tricky but gear is generally good throughout.

Some of the moves are slightly off-balance, but there is gear above most of the hard moves.
