16m. Climb the wide crack that splits the wall (big gear useful) to its end then climb the final steep wall centrally.

Wide crack: Friend 4 is not big enough. However a wire can be placed by a slightly wobbly chockstone and a sling can be hooked over it also;there are also a couple of smaller friend placements over on the right.
Top wall: if stepping left it's difficult to stay off East Rib even if trying to climb centrally. It might be better to stick to the right arete initially (Dodo) but the centre of the wall then is extremely green. It's steep up there as well!
