20m. Start at the right edge of the smooth right hand side of The Great Slab, by a short, wide crack. Climb leftwards to an easing of the angle, and make for a short, shallow runnel which leads to a small overlap (peg left on The Quarry Effect). Reach an edge up left, locate a small pocket and clip a high peg. Make thin moves back right (crux) and up to gain the top of the upper slab. Finish more easily to a double bolt belay.
