46m.

Rockfax Description
A classic of the quarries, and a must for any wannabe Slatehead. There is a poor lonely wire above the hard climbing and an even worse sling. From the blast shelter through the base of the arete, mantel onto the roof and follow a line of juggy hand holds out right to gain the arete. Once on the arete, compose yourself and climb to reach a heart-stoppingly airy high step. After this the climbing eases and the route switches to the opposite side of the arete. Finish up a short groove on the left side of the arete from a ledge near to the top. Trail a rope up to abseil off, although you will need two to reach the ground unless using a 70m. © Rockfax

βeta: There's more than one high step. The rock is as solid as most slate. The bad step on the walk-off looks frightening, but the holds are all there.
