14m. Fine and exciting climbing through the big roofs. Approach from the right and cross the first overhang to the second one. Undercut past this to reach jugs, then step left and finish up the flutings. A big cam in a pocket above the roof helps - a lot.

Easier than elder brother, and still really good. Big cam above the roof in the pocket makes it pretty safe too.
