30m.

Rockfax Description
An indifferent start but a good top pitch on this immaculate wall.
1) 4b, 25m. As for Scratch P1 and 2.
2) 5b, 30m. Climb the thin crack in the wall between Scratch and Scratch Arete to the overhang. Move up left below the next step in the roof and pull up and right over the roof via a thin crack. Continue up to join Scratch to finish. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
From the scratch belay:
2) 5b, 30m. Climb the right hand thin crack (the left is itch) in the wall between Scratch and Scratch Arete to the overhang. Pull through the roof directly above using the very thin crack (good rp3). Continue to join Scratch Arete to finish.

βeta: I've a feeling the Itch 'variation' pulls through the roof just to the left using a good big flat hold, near the arete; its a much easier sequence than Rhych dy Din. This route uses the very thin crack to go through the roof at its widest part

βeta: The description in the latest Tremadog guide is wrong. On P2, after the layback crack you can either keep going upwards through the roof via another crack (this bit is described as 'Itch variation' in the book) or you can traverse right to finish up scratch arete. There is no line of cracks in between the two, as is described in the book. The first option seems better and is what is described above.
