12m. Start beneath a juggy flake and from its top make a long move to a second flake and then another long reach into a rounded break, traverse left to a sapling then climb the difficult smooth wall above the sapling to the top.

Just back from leading this little gem ... the crag seemed a bit of a let down at first but once you've found the routes they're really good. Not sure if the sling on the sapling protects the crux but it helped my confidence a little :)

One of the best routes at the crag. Now rebolted with a direct finish to a new lower off (F7a)

Great route! You're new direct finish is exactly as i lead it trad a year or two ago (only without the mank topout!) - again nicely bolted. My partner Caroline found it Really reachy - very tough 7a for the short (6b if you've a decent ape index)
