20m. Sustained and desperate. Gain the hairline crack above the right-facing flake and follow it to the midway break. Step right (peg) and then back left, with difficulty, before moving up to a flake (peg). Move back right and up past one more peg.

Is this description accurate? When I failed on it I was trying to gain the lefthans side of the upper face which seemed to be where the holds and pegs were. I tried going directly from the top of the thin crack and fell off, and by stepping right at the break going up a bit then trying to move back left, and fell off. Got fed up and bagged it. Are you sure it goes direct up the top wall after stepping right at the break?

At the break after the thin starting crack go up and right to the first peg, then step left (crux) using some small sharp crimps to the flake and second peg. From there the route goes right 2m to the last peg and then straight up to the top.
