20m. The wide twisting crack is the best line on the cliff and it gives a suitably impressive tussle. Laybacking or offwidth techniques work, large cams are a real help too.

When the wall starts bulging, get your foot high on the knobbly wall and trust it.

Can't see anyone off-widthing this, just a ballsy layback up to the ledge and then a (awkward more than hard)move onto the shelf. Finish up the crux slab.
