20m. The best attempt yet to climb the narrow front face of the fin. Belay then continue easily up the ridge to the Fay belay to descend. Not in current guidebook.

If you follow the line as in the guidebook, rather than climbing up the front, it is a fun but shortlived route - good for when you're a bit tired. Obvious gear then a short crux section R then up L to arete.
When I did it there were some chalked holds leading up R from the route towards finish of Break on Through - this looked considerably harder and bolder, good effort someone.

Chalked up holds mentioned above is a new route by Dave Pickford, "Tokyo fish mafia" E6 6b
