15m. Strenuous, exciting and with a welcome rest halfway up. Start opposite Balamory Boulder on the left side of the square rib of Prophet Wall. Climb the short arete to a diagonal crack, climb this to the roof where you can slot in a decent cam. Chalk up and mantle the roof on smears where easier ground takes you to a stake belay.
