20m. 10 metres left of Great Corner in the centre of the main overhangs there is a pillar of rock with a crack above. Get feet high on pillar and grab high for good hold in crack and another on the left. Move up over rim (crux) and follow crack up over next overhang to main face. Follow crack for 4m to small rock spike then traverse right to larger crack and follow this to top. NOTE:only protection for crux was a sling on a rock-spike.
