12m. The steep crack in the left wall of the angular groove is a fine and fulsome outing. It is reached via a short awkward traverse past flakes, and gives quality hand and then fist jamming. The route is always in the shade and isn't too far from three stars.

Poor description guys: crack(s)? There's only the one. Groove? More of a face. Glorious jams? Hmmm, they COULD be so described I guess!

The jamming on the middle and upper sections is awkward and painful.

Marvellous, a stern test for any wall rat. Good climbing, great jams and a bit fluttery without big gear. 3 * all the way

Just about worth E2. The sandy pod before the crack is wearing somewhat (as in Gumshoe)and vcare must be taken with any cams placed in this.
