16m. The left-hand crack in the square recess with hard moves to pass the overhang. Above this, bridge direct or move right into the next climb to avoid the hanging gardens, then exit right.

All the fun is packed into the overhang. Restfull moves heading up to the roof and once in-situ, it feels intimidating while your banging in some gear.

But once you have commited to leaving your comfortable spot and moving out and pulling over, all the handholds are there. A quick heave-ho and it's all done. After that it's VDiff amble to the finnish.
