20m. An awkward move on the lower wall is followed by easy but adventurous climbing above. Finish up the superbly-positioned seaward arete. Lower off in two stages via a double bolt belay on ledge at two-thirds height. Not in current guidebook.

Passing the initial roof is fairly easy but then the climbing gets quite hard on the middle section of the wall above - there is quite a fingery section to reach and clip a bolt and then it is quite pumpy above this. A fluttery symbol is proabably appropriate for this section as the bolts are a bit spaced and a missed clip would be quite serious. Above the first lower-off on the ledge, the route goes almost horizontally left on a ledge with two massive balanced flakes to exit onto another ledge on the arete. It is certainly possible to get back to the first lower-off to strip the route, but a better option might be to get someone to second the route and then to ab. off.
