32m.

Rockfax Description
The left wall of the corner of Laugh Not is a fine route. Climb the corner until some committing moves can be made to gain the left-arching overlap. Follow the overlap to a point where the corner on the left can be accessed, then move up to a small overhang. Finish up the narrow corner on its left. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Neat climbing based on an inverted left-facing, stepped fault line on the left wall of Laugh Not and starting as for that route

βeta: Fun but not a strong line, as second traverse is artificial: it's much easier/more logical to shuffle along the ledge earlier to Do Not Direct, rather than going 3m higher and traversing above the ledge. As mentioned by Gledhirb01, the small spike on the rh-side of the ledge after you have escaped Laugh Not is loose - though this isn't immediately obvious. However ,there is actually gear in more or less the same place if you have microwires.

βeta: The spike halfway along the traverse (after the big move) is now loose and takes no gear.

βeta: Some holds have broke on the traverse across from Laugh Knot, obvious rock scars.
