20m. A wandering trip up the left-hand side of the wall. Climb a shallow groove to steeper rock then pull right and back left (peg) making long reaches to gain a narrow resting ledge out on the left. Finish out right, steeply but on better holds.

very nice entertaining,technical and to a good degree bold climbing.
I simply clipped the old peg (looks reasonably o.k., but you never know...) and then went for the traverse moves. there's probabably another small wire or RP, but 'd be diificult to place in that position. So I didn't. Quite scary then to reach for that ledge. Once there it's all over...
