12m. The central rift of the buttress gives a fine outing, steep and quite awkward, as far as the capping roof. A stomach-traverse used to be the way to go, though nowadays there are less extreme ways of getting left to the final short crack.

I can't see why this gets VS 4b (or even MVS 4b as I think it gets in the YMC guide). It's well protected throughout, and with plenty of rests, standard HS 4b.
