45m.

Rockfax Description
A big, safe climb with atmosphere. Start up Act Naturally - you will need some gear to reach the final well-bolted slab above the ramp. For the upper section, sustained but straightforward climbing leads past a large number of bolts to the top. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Follow Act Naturally (wires) to where it starts to traverse right at about 10/12m. Then follow the line of 10 bolts weaving there way up to the left of 'Dr Stranglove' to a top out and double bolt belay - one next to the edge and one further back on a big flat block. Good climbing with the crux near the top! Could be done in two pitches if you fancy.
