45m. A long and worthwhile expedition. Start up Rob's Crack; then traverse rightwards just above the lip of the overlap all the way to the concretions near the right-hand end of the slab. Make a few moves up the concretions; then use a right-slanting diagonal crack to reach a wide crack in the end of the slab. Climb this easily to the top.

The idea is to stay just above the lip of the overlap all the way across, although I got a little higher here and there in order to take advantage of gear and holds in horizontal cracks. The original line traversed all the way to a crack in the extreme right-hand end of the slab. However, the lowest part of this crack is very loose, and it's safer to stop the traverse a little earlier, go up a line of concretions a short way; then use a thin diagonal crack to move right to the more solid part of the crack system.
