22m. From the foot of the grassy ramp at the right edge of the Glacis, climb discontinuous cracks to a sapling; then pass left of this and continue to a lower-off.

Starting right of the tree, rather that at the tree itself (as per guidebook instructions) makes more sense at the grade. There's a distinct move right at about 8 metres to gain the large crack that runs up to the sapling. Then pass to left of sapling.
