20m. Climb cracks and a large flake at the right side of the larger west facing buttress below the Alpine Ridge. Above the flake the route appears to consist of a stack of loose blocks.

Nice climbing, pity it's so loose. Watch out for the top - if you aren't careful, you'll fall down the other side. There isn't a good way down either, as you have to scramble down the Alpine Ridge or risk getting nettled to death on the way to an abseil point!
