170m. Start in the bay below an obvious left slanting ramp which you climb for 8 metres before breaking hard right at the first opportunity to a turfy stance (Wallnut 11 useful here). Make an awkward step down onto small slabby edges and make an 'ace steep turfed ledge dangling' traverse right to gain the turfy snow bay. Move diagonally up and right directly towards the capping roofs until level with them, before traversing left over a nose to a short steep corner. Bridge your way up the corner before following a ledge-ramp system leftwards through an awkward step to access the easy angled slabs above. Ascend directly above to the headwall before walking hard right along the big ramp.

Protracted weaving route. Made mistake of traversing obvious lower right trending traverse when it should have been the higher one heading directly towards the roof system. The 'step down and awkward traverse round nose' to gain access to the turfy bay is hefty at IV,5 and requires nice footwork, albeit short and no doubt compounded by crap turf today although is pretty technical on feet, matching pretty small edges on monos, more like stiff tech 6 today. Soft turf and porridgey snow coupled with melting ice so backed off.
