20m. Good but devious, and hard! Pull through the bulge then cross the overhang by baffling moves to access the base of the slab. Climb The Mincer a short distance, step back onto the slab as for Smear Test but climb up and right (almost as far as the crack Ð side runner) then finish back leftwards.
The route that Smear Test should have been!! A quality line
I thought this was a quality route with three distinct hard sections all requiring thought but ultimately safe.
The KB move was definitely 6b for me (I'm tall), and the finish a bit skiddier than it looks (maybe just a bit green when I did it). The rests between the hard sections break up the climb in some ways, but without them it'd be E5, I guess - as it is, an excellent mid-E4.
