16m. Climb Pile Driver but stay low until it is possible to enter the steep crack that runs up the right-hand side of the prow. Press on up this rapidly before you get too pumped.

Where did the other star go?? An interesting and "particular" route taking one on a fine voyage in exciting territory. Gaining the crack may be the obvious crux (painful rather than pumpy), whilst the finish looks offputtingly very green, but is fine and fun if it's dry (a secret gear placement helps if moral fibre is becoming an issue).
