10m. The flake that runs up the right edge of the buttress is the substance of the route. Reach it with difficulty (hard for everybody and especially so for the short - E2) and sprint up it by quality barn-door layback moves.

Having failed to get off the ground on Safety Net, being able to waltz up this was very pleasant.
