38m. Start below the left-hand side of the recess. Climb easily to saplings below the smooth slab. Step up to a horizontal crack and lace it; then make thin moves up and slightly right to a reasonable microwire placement. Move up and bear boldly back leftwards to the overlap. Pass the overlap on its right, and finish more easily by way of a left-slanting crack and large calcite pockets.

βeta: Looks like a camp ballnut wouldve fit best in the tiny slot on the crux. Didn't have one, and couldn't get a decent wire in the now pretty worn gash. Would've made love with the buddleias below had I wobbled off. Dubious.
