24m.

Rockfax Description
Devious but long and involving. From the lowest point of the buttress climb the crack just left of the arete, then the excellent right-slanting crack to just below the Leaning Tower. Head left for 4m to a ledge then climb the arete to a better ledge on the right. The leaning crack above leads to easier ground. Care with the rope work needed. © Rockfax

βeta: This is not a 4c problem, it may be a VS as protection is good but the overall difficuly of the climb remains high so i agree with the voting thay HVS may be appropriate.
