23m. Start around 5m right of the cave entrance (a little left of the sapling) under the low overhang. Fierce moves allows you to mount the overhang (can be placed from below) and leads to more stable climbing. Keep left of the second smaller overhang and climb to the ledge. Continue directly up heading for the pedestal which is mounted on its left side. Head up and left from here to a few bolder moves and another in-situ thread. Pass the smaller tree and finish at the larger tree with abseil tat.

βeta: Low in the grade. Loads of good gear. You can lace it, so take lots of 1-8 nuts. Would be good for someone's 1st HVS lead. Hardest bit is the beginning.
