43m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A charming route with continually interesting moves. Start just left of an arete as for Elevation.
1) 12m. Climb the open grooves for 4m then head slightly rightwards across short corners to a ledge and belay.
2) 4b, 23m. Take the short steep wall and crack above to a rest on the left at a ledge. Move up to an overlap and traverse right to clear it. Take the corner above and finish direct. Walk off to the left (looking out). © Rockfax

βeta: Wired guide has this listed as a 31m second pitch. Also, the parallel line Elevation to the left is listed as a 43m single pitch both here and in Wired, so something doesn't add up. Belayed at the ledge as a precaution rather than running them together - probably would have made it in one.
