11m.

Rockfax Description
12m. The continuation provides a fitting finale - low in the grade but awkward enough to keep you working. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
One of Brimhams best known classics, its first recorded extreme . Follow the twin cracks of Frensis to the overhang, then move left and tackle the bulging crack. Brilliant.

Allan Austin 14/Apr/1957.

βeta: I always thought this to be a lower end, 3 star E1 5b, definitely harder than Frensis

βeta: Johnny wanted to lead and I was happy to let him! We had both climbed the ordinary route previously so knew what to expect. Johnny soon reached the start of the Direct where he placed our meager selection of home made nuts [no Friends or Hexes in 1966]. He climbed the final crack in his normal effortless style...very impressive. I was pleased to follow on the blunt end. A tuff climb in those day's!
