12m.

Rockfax Description
Often used as a descent route but also worthwhile as a beginners' route. Start at the toe of the slab and ascend to its tip - not much gear. A couple of short awkward corners complete the route. The right edge is even easier. © Rockfax

βeta: Bit of a cakewalk, and definitely more of a Mod than a Diff, didn't bother with a rope or pro for my 2nd gritstone "lead"

βeta: Very hard to protect so could be quite scary as a first lead. But then again, if Black Hawk Right Hand is Diff, this is surely only Mod?!
