20m. Another desperate route up the wall above the traverse of The Swan with a safe fall-out zone beneath very hard wall climbing up a slight ramp. From the thin crack, teeter across the wall diagonally rightwards using a crucial pebble (which did come off but has been glued back on) and a ramp for the feet to desperately rounded ledges and a final easy crack.

The 'ledges' are extrememly rounded, and the only way to access them is by means of a difficult dyno, heart in mouth!

can be done by dynoing into the break above.
