14m. The centre of the steep slab is a Curbar test-piece, being both technical and bold. Climb directly to the runner slot on One Step Beyond then continue up the sustained thin crack above. An RP2 is useful in the crack but it is hard to place.

The low runner slot is getting quite badly worn - worth checking out. Also it might be possible to get one of the new small zero friends in the finishing crack where a rock'n roller? went.

The low runner slot as above is getting worn, when a friend of mine did the route there was actually a sall flake of rock stuck in the slot.

You can also protect the lower section before the slot with some poor sky hooks.
