15m. Independent if slightly escapable climbing up the main wall beneath the promontory direct crack.

Start as for Promontory Direct, placing high gear in the groove then step left to below the overlap. Surpass this at its right hand side, then follow holds rightwards to reach a good hold and gear (crux) just left and above the top of the groove. Follow a series of crimps up and left, easier climbing reaches the base of the promontory direct finishing crack.
