37m. Excellent slab climbing, bold in places.
Start in the centre of the slab at the top of the gully underneath Kennel Wall and the imposing hanging slab of One Step Beyond. Climb the slab, rightwards at first and then cut back left across the blank wall to the obvious flake. Ascend straight up for a few metres then move right to the obvious groove in the overhang. Climb the groove to finish.
