50m.

Rockfax Description
A stern test of both mind and strength on one of Avon's most impressive walls. Start about 45m up the path from the base of the crag at a well-worn gearing-up spot below a tree on a ledge at 3m.
1) 5b, 25m. Climb up vegetated ground above the tree and work easily rightwards to a peg under an overhang. Move down left, then make committing moves up the wall to better holds which lead leftwards again to a small overhang. Move over the overhang rightwards to a small ledge and climb the groove above to a small stance.
2) 5b, 25m. Continue up the groove to an overhang and pull out right and then up into the crack that splits the spectacular final wall. Follow the crack to the left end of the capping overhangs and finish leftwards. © Rockfax

βeta: Something didn’t seem quite right! The tree at 3m wasn’t there and the initial grove had loose rock and dirty. Managed to climb up to the first old peg (bold) with no other gear and then faced with committing moves with just an old peg. Chose the safer option and retreated up the VS!
