31m.

Rockfax Description
The eye-catching dark corner on the left side of the central leaning wall is a great line and climb.
1) 4c, 18m. As for Pluto.
2) 6a, 34m. Make technical and committing moves up the initial section of the corner before heading up to where it steepens once again. Strenuous climbing past the right side of the overhang gains less steep (but still sustained) climbing that eventually leads to easier ground. There are a number of aging pegs in this pitch. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The great corner is climbed past a number (17?) of old pegs. Very tiring with a fairly bold start.

Duncan Campbell 11 May, 2018 Lead O/S Mega. After bailing from Pavey then Ben racking up for Fine Time and realising he had 2 left shoes I strapped it in for this. Wasn’t feeling super psyched as it was freezing but really glad I did. Bottom is pretty feisty - bring a small micro cam. Got a savage flash pump but there are enough rests and with some wide bridging it wasn’t a total Nightmare. Backed the 1st peg up and then had to slap for what I hoped (and was) a good hold. Good effort Ben seconding with one rock shoe one approach shoe!

LRob 30 Aug, 2017 Lead G/U Hard moves to the peg then pretty steady beyond. The gear before the peg is good. Small cam useful. Committing moves to clip peg which can be backed up. Upper roof is great.

Eduardo Martinez 5 Aug, 2017 Lead Failed on it 20 years or so ago. Bottled it again today by grabbing the tat on the first peg. Couldn't trust the friend below it; the only piece stopping you from decking it from 6 or 7m on the crux, should you fall. The rest of the route I did cleanly. Interestedly the picture in Extreme Rock shows a peg by that friend placement. This peg should be replaced and all the other redundant pegs further up the route removed in my opinion.
