20m. Sustained and difficult from the off. Reaching through long moves into a tenuous rock over to find a rest at the start of the crux. Taking small pinches along a flake to establish the jugs at the end of the crux, before moving into a large tufa system complete with knee bar and some funky moves to traverse around them to the anchor above the large dome at the top of the system.

Considered 7b since a hold broke off, 2017.
