14m. Climb the crack in the left-hand side of the gully to a cave and bridge past this. Step left and climb the overhang on the front of the buttress to finish.

Not advisable for people with short legs

How to reach the final overhang if only 5' 10" ? Even The Keel seems easy at HVS 5b in comparison; it is at least feasible.

I have short legs, so what, Bridge! A much underated route. Felt correct for the grade. Reassuring gear.

There is good finger jamming in the break below the top but you may have to be a bit bold and step up with confidence to look it in the face. Good positive edges over the top to avoid a swimmers finish.
