15m.

Rockfax Description
Miles better than any other route in the Dovestones Quarries. The finger-crack gives super-sustained finger jamming all the way, well-protected, but with little for your feet. Another classic from the raiding Bancroft. . © Rockfax

βeta: New belay stake about 10m - 15m directly uphill from the top of the route in the steep heather. There is a small sapling just uphill and to the left (looking uphill) of the stake, so if you get up to the level of the sapling, you have gone too far. It doesn't protrude out above the heather much so some hunting around may be needed. You can ab down from the stake and reach the ground just on a single 50m rope, 40m won't reach as we found out! Obviously use with caution, assess the stability of the stake for yourself before using it.
