16m.

Rockfax Description
16m. The elegant slanting groove is a classic with a steep start then a fine flake forming a mild uphill hand-traverse. The initial wide section is awkward (thread runner), after that get shimmying. The perfect place to start your comeback maybe. © Rockfax

βeta: A great route. Loved the slabby finish. A real 'run up the rock' job.
