20m. This is a great airy climb up the arête of the obvious pinnacle (Pulpit Rock).
Start is up the gully a wee bit with a leftwards step over to the Arête, then direct climbing up to the top. Good protection, solid holds, plenty of space on top for a decent belay. Abseil down the back using accessory cord on the V block, or climb down into the gully that you started in using the chockstones.

βeta: If you are small and/or have short legs, the step back off the pinnacle may be a challenge - either needs belaying by a tall friend who can get down easier, or you need to have not been pushing the grade at Severe, certainly would feel necky for that

βeta: This is a really great climb without being too scary. Good positive holds and a real sense of achievement. Some beta about getting back down: There's a triangular block on the top of the pinnacle that you can tie some accessory cord around to abseil off, or like us you can belay your second to down-climb the back of the pinnacle to the chock-stones, then down climb the lefthand gulley placing gear on the way down. Leader can then reverse-lead climb down and remove gear.
