10m. Climb onto the recessed edge then step left into the chimney and follow this and then the crack above to a taxing finish, which fortunately can be well-protected.


A real 'sandbag' in the Kinder guide at HD!

One of my first leads and I have to agree with Paul J, the HD grade in the Kinder guide is a little deceptive.

How can it be a sandbag when there's only half a grade difference?

Oops. Didn't mean to vote for HVD or 2 stars!

Looks a classic, obvious line. The top is more awkward than you'd expect, and I couldn't work out the make of the very broken cam that is lodged in the top section... ;-)
