20m. Improbable and well protected climbing that finds an accessible path through an intimidating neighbourhood.
Climb the easy wide, white groove past a couple of old pegs to a small foot-ledge (bolt above). Step across to the left and move up with difficulty past a bolt runner to a resting place under the jagged overhang (8mm bolt and handy wire placement). Follow the series of blocks steeply up leftwards past a bolt runner to reach good handholds and a peg (with in-situ sling). With added protection from wires and cams continue much more easily up into the scoop above to reach a deep slot and finish with a hard reach past a bolt runner to a replacement double ring abseil station.

Re-cleaned and re-equipped 2012. An extra bolt added just below the abseil station.
