20m.

Rockfax Description
Above some blocks about 25m left of the top of Cape York Approach lies a slab that is very mossy on its right and cleaner on its left. Start at the left edge of the slab base. Pad up a ramp, continue left just above the rim of the leaning lower wall, then go up to a ledge in a shallow depression. From the right side of the ledge, follow a shallow groove more easily to the top (block belays behind). © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The second pitch of the original route (the first is now bolted and described separately as Cape York Approach). Technically straightforward but unprotected. There are sound holds for all moves but some fragile ones that must be avoided so careful climbing is needed.

20 m 4b/c About 10 m up and R from A Brucie Bonus above some blocks lies a slab that is very mossy on its R and cleaner on its L. Start at the L edge of the slab base where it is clean. Pad L up a ramp. Move L just above the lip of the leaning lower wall then go up to a ledge in a shallow depression. From the R side of the ledge follow a shallow groove more easily to the top (block belays behind). Walk to the L back to the Darwin level or use the ab station about 10 m R to return to the Cape York Level.

harold walmsley 5 Aug, 2014 - Put a 2 B lower off/ab point at the top of P1 (easily accessible from above) to provide a way off the Cape York Level back down to Darwin. Put 3 bolts in P1 to make it a useful way to access the Cape York level with minimum fuss. Maybe P1 now F4+/5. Best give it a separate name: Cape York Approach

harold walmsley 1 Jul, 2014 TR rpt Abseiled and cleaned both Cape York Approach and Slab. Shunted both, soloed Slab to get out. Slab now easier, 4b? (crux is now low down, after cleaning away the loose flakes it is now straightforward to get on the ledge, which is no longer grassy). The Approach is F4a/b.

harold walmsley 17 Jun, 2014 Solo O/S 1st ascent of Cape York Approach (p1) and Slab (p2). Cleaned on the way up. Not sure of the grade as moves are straightforward but no obvious protection and loose holds that need to be avoided (there are sound holds to be found somewhere for every move). Make a stab at VS but technically easier than that.
