22m. This climbs the centre of the inverted triangular slab set at a lower level and to the south of the back wall routes. Start up an easy groove then bridge to gain jugs on the left arête. Clip the second bolt with care then relax and pull onto the wall proper. Follow flakes then a shallow scope to below the obvious overlap, cross this with difficulty and continue to a ledge. The final wall provides a tricky finish. An absorbing and sustained route.

Gave the crux and upper slab a good clean, lots of lichen about. Good sustained route with a few crumbly bits
