18m. The original and best? A ramp on the lower tier leads to a heather cornice and belay on the ledge. Gain the slab with difficulty then pass the big pocket and then the notch in the roof.

Did this a while back now, but remember it been fairly friendly for its grade. The 5b move is a slab move above a ledge, once established (tricky) its pretty steady to good gear below the exit small overhang.
