14m. Mantel onto the arete of the buttress then move up to the roof. Either grovel along the ledge (historically accurate but scary) or hand traverse rapidly all the way to Mutiny Crack. Not too well protected and high in the grade.

Led this on Saturday as the name and description intrigued me and it looked like a bit of a laugh :o) A couple of nice moves to get onto the arete, then launch out along the hand traverse which feels very committing. Make sure you've got a #4 or #5 cam! HVS 4c is right.
