24m. It starts just 2 metres right from when the wall turns from white to red. Climb up and right to an small tree (4mts). Then up left to a cave using some roots for protection (4mts). From there slightly right to reach a second smaller cave or hollow (4mts). Move a metre right and then climb straight up the juggy slightly over hanged wall (crux, 3-4mts). Traverse left (3mts) and then up over an easy groove (5mts)

βeta: I thought this route lacked gear even by Yat standards. The climbing is solid and good but of 5 runners 3 were tree/root/rock threads. Felt more like VS for pro - on reflection - pretty normal for the Yat!
