8m.

Rockfax Description
Well-protected but tough crack-climbing. Start below the fist size crack in the buttress on the left of the face.
The crack can be laced with good gear but the ascent is still a good test of jamming especially the first few metres. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
An awkward entry into the crack which eases with height.

βeta: Difficulty is probably very dependent on hand size. I have large-ish hands and got good fist jams in the early section where you have little choice but to jam. My second, who has small hands, found that section very insecure. In any case you need big gear to protect it. My BD size 3 (blue) was only good for the very beginning, and then I used a size 4 (grey), bumping it progressively higher as I went up.
