14m.

Rockfax Description
14m. Excellent and exposed. Climb over a flake to a ledge (tricky) then take the slabby ramp and thin crack to more ledges. Tackle the strenuous layaway flake-crack to yet more ledges then choose a finishing crack, the right-hand one being harder and better. © Rockfax

βeta: I thought the crux maybe warranted 4c, certainly trickier than it looks. Superb route, interesting throughout - make sure you do the right hand finish!
