48m. The route takes the prominent slanting grooves in the centre-right of the wall. Start 6m right of Yellow Wall beneath a block overhang at the base of a corner.
1) 6a, 27m. Climb round the hideous lower roof (crux), then follow the corner and rightward-slanting groove. At 20m, the groove curves back left to a platform and belay.
2) 5c, 21m. Step airily right around an arĂȘte into a groove. Reach the diagonal break (tricky) and move up into the obvious deep crack on the right wall. Muscle up this to the top. A variation finish traverses left into a stepped groove system.

βeta: Clean and solid rock, abseil off a new-looking stake - considering how infrequently this route is done it's in really good nick. Tat on belay ledge is still fairly robust too.
