35m. The obvious full-height clean strip of slab right of The Tory. Now named and put in the record, but obviously climbed many times before, probably by climbers mistaking the route for Ants in my Leg Loop, which is actually further right. 4m right of Balch's Cave (the start of The Tory) is a tree; 4m right again is a larger tree. Start between the two trees and make a couple of tricky moves rightwards to gain the slab. Climb up, trending slightly right at one third height; then climb direct to the top.
