38m. Bold. Start right of Moving Target, at the right-hand side of the recess. Climb easily up to the right-hand side of the overlap and twin saplings. Step up left and climb a short right-slanting crack to a break. Make a couple of moves up to a good edge (an option here is to stride left to place a side-runner in Moving Target). Climb diagonally rightwards to marginal micro placements and a scoop. Bear back left and climb to the overlap; then move up to the rightmost of the crystalline pockets. Climb the right side of the headwall to good cracks and climb these, finishing just right of a buddleia near the top.
