15m. Start up some broken blocks just right of a tree to gain a platform, then climb a groove/crack on the left to reach a shelf. From here, traverse left onto the arete and finish straight up.

Quite good position once you climb out to the arete. Seems suprisingly good for a wee route. Never expect that.
