12m. Climb the front of the pillar then move right for an exposed finish via a crack that splits the nose.

Getting very overgrown by the holly bush (would be a great route otehrwise)

Seriously challenging finish: surely more than VS 4c?

It is tough for the grade but if you climb the top bulge using the sloping holds slightly to the left of the crack it is less of a struggle than if you follow the crack itself.

Holly bush has been cut back so that's one lest problem to contend with.
