22m. Grippingly precarious, especially for the tall. From runners in the thin crack teeter rightwards along the highest break until the horizontal crack can be reached. Swing along this and climb the excellent jamming crack at its end. Not in current guidebook.

Fell off this at the point where you reach the horizontal crack. Attentive belayers ensured a twisted ankle was all I ended up with. So balancy that you need to counter balance the act of removing a hand to chalk up, by turning your head in the opposite direction! (I did anyway)
