45m.

Rockfax Description
A huge pitch that incorporates some fine climbing, although not without some loose rock in its mid section. Start at a thin crack in the dark crevasse on the landward side of the face.
Climb the thin cracks up the bulging lower wall to an easing at 15m. Continue up the face-crack passing a loose section to better climbing and rock where the crack starts to thin. © Rockfax

βeta: Not your average lineless climbing-wall-style Sharpnose experience. A big and spectacular line - get a photographer on the descent path for the top section. The start is pretty tricky but the rock in the middle is a bit of a shocker, all very Gogarth. Feels like E3 if it goes to plan but could be E5 if something big comes off especially if your gear is behind it - so E4 average is about right. Very satisfying all the same.
