14m. Sure it's been done before, but this is the first claim (at least here)! Climb Porthole Direct to the ledge before the "crucial leaning and narrowing crack just to the left" and then step right to tackle the overhang direct (as per Captain Birdseye). The overhang is a hardcore slopey 5a roll over move; especially hard without the hidden hold!

Had a play on Victor Hugo - span was too large and friction too poor in hot weather so did this route instead.

Wasn't paying attention to the description of Porthole Direct so did this by mistake.

Done all the bits before as part of other routes, so not sure 'onsight' is the right term
