24m. Climb the awkward diagonal crack to the huge block tucked under the roof, then hand-traverse this (it's OK, the thing is well-jammed) and continue round the arete to a rest. Climb up then back leftwards to access the front face and finish easily.

The traverse is great, shame about having to dip into the gully.

Technical starting crack nearly barn doored off; juggy but very sustained and out there no-foot-holds first part traverse; followed by sloping handholds, slighly better footholds but arms completely knackered second part of the traverse. Oh and then an airy, poorly protected traverse back left. VS 4c ? Not in my book.
