Another devious line, tough for the grade and doesn’t let off the whole way. For me there was a distinct hard crux about 1/3 height coming out the top of the groove and onto the pillar.

All a bit squeezed in at one point I could reach the bolts to the left (new route) and those to the right. Nice climbing nonetheless, the start is polished but improves with height. i thought it was more like 30m than 20m.
