32m. Eliminate in its lower half, but a good, long route nonetheless. Start as for Strictly Ballroom. Step up right and climb the slab above the small tree, passing a 1m right of the blast pocket, to the left edge of a niche. Move up and follow right-rising diagonal cracks to a good square-cut hold. Stand up in this and climb straight up to pass just right of a sapling. Continue direct to pass just left of the foot of a grassy rake; then trend rightwards to reach and follow a thin flake (crux). Finish straight up to a lower-off, or, if this is not in-situ, scramble up grassy slopes to saplings.
