23m. In the middle of the left wall is an obvious fierce crack, with a large square block at half height. Climb the crack to the block, enter the upper section by a precarious pull on fist jams and continue strenuously to the grass ledge. The loose corner above leads to the moor. Cleaned to the ledge 2023.
