16m. Pull over the centre of the roof at a scoop then traverse crabwise leftwards between the overlaps to escape up the grassy groove at the left-hand end of the face.

Brilliant fun, best route of the year so far ;)

You seem to be able to traverse at 3 different levels. Either climb up past the weirdly shaped rocks and walk up a ramp on the left (I think the BMC guide describes this line). Or stay slightly lower and use the ramp for your hands. Or stay lower still with your feet on the lip of the lowest overlap.
I chose the middle version, and it was fantastic, would be 3 stars if the top out weren't so vegetated! Definitely HS though.
