23m. The slight groove of sorts, some 8 metres upslope of 'Ring Tone' has a somewhat  'Tinternesque' feel about it. Solid enough while keeping to the line of the seven bolt runners. Start just to the right of 'Caveat Emptor'.
Surmount an awkward first bulge to easier ground in the white depression. Now follow a series of thin layaways while bridging up the steeper wall above before swinging left to a comfy resting ledge. Step back right to an agreeable steep finish. Double bolt abseil station.
