24m. The astounding axe-edge arete may by the most impressive piece of grit in the Peak. Gain the arete from 8m up Route 1 and head up and left with sustained and precarious difficulties to the terrifying final arete.

Easy E7 and pretty safe at that - as long as you don't fall off the last bit of the traverse.
