40m. An exceptional route in a wild position, with some suspect rock in the lower half.

From a bolt belay 15m right(facing out) of the BB at the top of Appian Way a 35m abseil will get you to a small corner/cave and BB (there are bolts in Trade Winds that you can use to keep the rope in to reach the belay (steep crag!)).

Climb rightward across a hanging garden towards a good thread, then continue towards the arete and another thread (poor in-situ), steep moves upward lead to a bolt (poor). Continue up the wall above first trending left then back right till you reach a vague groove. Climb this passing three threads (poor in-situ, first can be threaded easily with a sling) until the angle eases. Above you will find steep grass and rock, ascend this carefully until you reach a belay
