8m. A mini Three Pebble Slab maybe. Head out right onto a ledge then balance up the slab passing the useful orifice (runner OR foothold) that gives the route its name.

Dare I say - a mini TPS? But do you solo it and use the pocket for your foot, or get the gear and loose the hold?

You can get a size two freind into the back of the hole and still use it (for feet/hands) if you're careful not to tread on the gear. The last two moves are fairly unprotected even with gear but they're easy. Wouldn't recommned it as a first VS but if you've done a few then it's good value.

It is rather like a mini TPS.
Just like TPS it gets overgraded by some too:
UKClimbing log book has it down as HVS!

HVS 4c - pretty nasty sandbag at VS and could hurt someone. The move to get your foot in the hole is technically harder than anything on Tiger Wall for instance.
