16m. Climb the central groove to a green exit onto a large ledge. The left side of the face behind gives a pleasant and well-protected continuation. The 'obvious' leftward descent isn't one!

A complete non-entity of a route....and as for it being S 4a? Compare with say, Modern (given S 4a) about 100m to the left? Or Black & Tans?......Its VDiff (with an easy 4a move in the corner) at best.

I think its possibly fine as it is, being low in the Severe grade, and a pleasant line. Modern is not the same grade as this or Black and Tans (which I also find easy for a severe) but that might mean its the wrongly graded route.
