12m. The wall just left of the blunt nose is a good V5 problem. Pull over the narrow overhang to reach the final slab.

A tricky (bouldery) start leads to easier ground. A pleasing route.

I led this, but definitely better done as a steady V4 boulder problem above mats - the finish is of little consequence, but the start remains a good, fingery problem.

Solid V5 as per the description I think. And the problem doesn't end quite as neatly as you hope it might - slightly terrifying in fact.
