24m. A fine long pitch with the main difficulties encountered on the face above the major horizontal break. Not in current guidebook.

Probably 6c+ with beta! Hard to flash as the crux is easy to get hopelessly wrong, from which point it is difficult to change tactics without instinctively grabbing your last clip! Don't relax too quickly or you'll be grabbing the next on as well! A fine route!

Update to last comment having followed the route after the loss of a significant hold on the crux section. Although not a great deal harder the 'difficult to read' bit is now a move or so longer and thus well worth 7a in my humble opinion!

Agree with comments about hard to work out. Harder grade must be for on-sight.

a bolted peak limestone quarry classic, superb intricate and sustained top half way up on an atmospheric wall above dancing wildflower meadows
