14m. The long crack in the left-hand side of the face is hard work where it splits the roof; a classic struggle. © ROCKFAX

A windy and increasingly dark night - led up to the crux move but just couldn't see how to make the step out of the crackline in the dark, returned to ground and let Dom find the tiny foothold that would make the difference, continuing to second with my head torch. A great evening.
