16m.

Rockfax Description
16m. An exciting expedition. Climb Pile Driver but stay low until it is possible to gain the steep crack running up the right-hand side of the prow. Press on up this rapidly before you get too pumped and finish up the green wall. There are runners up there, honest! © Rockfax

Cool route, managed to find a duff way of doing the starting moves (part of the VS) as this felt like the crux, rest easy but steep jamming.

High in the grade, but it should get more attention. At the top, I traversed back left into Pile Driver because the lichen on the arete was like a soggy mattress.
