35m. Start in the obvious large crack until it narrows into a slight overhang, then move put to the left onto the slab and continue diagonally left following the crack to the top, plenty of trees to belay from.

βeta: After backing off Orcrist (with some difficulty) because couldn't get past Ravens nest which is much bigger than it looks from below. Getting out of cleft on to slab seems hard for a VD, more a severe.Orcrist should be avoided at any time if the ravens are to continue nesting in future years - don't remove the nest.

wilsers 10 Jul, 2013 Lead O/S Easy enough. Getting out of the cleft is the only tricky bit but that's not hard either. The very top is 25M away but there is another tree to belay from at about 20M leaving a short scramble to the very top. The left hand descent gully is not very nice. Abseiling is better but you need a 60M rope to get back down to the bottom! Alternatively abseil back down the climb from the 20M belay tree.
