12m. The best of the quartet gives classic jamming/laybacking (quite steep but fine once you commit to the moves) to a rest on a ledge on the left, and then more of the same to the top. It's a relief to find that the exit is reasonably straightforward.

I seconded this on 28-08-2007. Stood at the bottom looking up I was apprehensive. We did the climb using lean back technique, only my technique leaves something to be desired and hence I was quickly exhausted. Not for the faint hearted...or weak.

I led this on 9/9/07, being one of my first at the grade - superb climbing throughout although my arms were trashed at the end - the gear is superb and as my climbing partner has his own rack I was able to double up on Friends which really helped especially the bigger friends.

Climed for the first time on 27-06-15. I decided to climb it without any cams and found that two good sets of hexes made it a nice climb but felt a bit exposed around the lay back area due to the wind picking up on a otherwise lovely sunny day. Sketchy start but I wouldn't like to try it in the damp.
