20m.

Rockfax Description
A great introduction to the type of climbing you find on the run-out slabs in the quarries. Solo up to the first bolt (at 12m!), and make a desperate move to reach the second bolt. Above this, a small terrace leads up and left like a stairway to the stars. Enjoy the easy and run-out climbing above until you have a nervous moment moving back right to reach the lower-off. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A delicate line up the right hand edge of the slab. Climb carefully to a break then traverse rightwards to the first bolt. Thin moves (harder for the short) lead up to the second bolt, followed by an easier run-out to the top. Bolted lower off. Direct start done 04/04/86.

βeta: Bomber sidewards side 7 nut in the break before the bolt. Makes the starting solo feel a lot less intimidating.
