15m. A remorselessly strenuous route, perhaps the best here. A vertical crack line with a porthole near its base and finishing at a chain lies 3m left of the step. Climb the crack past twin peg runners and the overlap, with a move right and back left near the top. Graded for an onsight lead.

βeta: Yes there is gear but its fiddly to place well and not that obvious. On closer inspection, the left side of the cam slot before the crux is actually detached and the wire below is not overly inspiring. Good route but I wouldn't say its well protected.
