26m.

Rockfax Description
26m. Bridge up the wide and prickly lower section of the gully until it is possible to transfer into the crack above. Continue up this, passing a possible constricted stance, to the left-hand end of the great roof. Pull over the bulge then either finish easily.
The Neb Finish, 4b - Climb as far as a thread, descend a couple of moves, shuffle rightwards on rounded holds out into space to the final exposed (and thankfully easy) rib. © Rockfax

βeta: I'm looking forward to seeing a topo. The old BMC guide is useless in this respect - no line is shown for this route, and once I got above the Hollybush, I had no idea where it went, based on the description...
