18m. The rift that cleaves the centre of the buttress, passing the chock (crux) early on. Safe but a battle.

This route is all about the getting over the first chock. The pro is bomb proof all the way up - take lots of long slings but don't load up your hips with too much gear if you are broad in the beam - you'll get stuck in the crack! Don't be tempted to escape behind the last chock, topping out on the face is lovely.

If you're me, you go under the first (and third) chock!

Thought it was no harder than VDiff, the hardest part is getting off the ground.
