27m. Start behind the large tree (Now gone). Climb to a ledge and follow a vague groove to a peg, then step left and climb up to reach another peg. Move up to a further peg then step left and continue steeply to the top.
Very well protected!

petecallaghan 12 Apr, 2017 2nd O/S Great friction, nice moves. Easy to wander off onto a nearby route though. Torchlight ascent with Mark and Ray. Didn't find any move harder than 5a so maybe I was off route
