14m. Take the lowest possible line up the edge of the face on sloping footholds and then move around onto the exposed face where mild but bold moves up the rib reach superb finishing jugs. As easy as it ever was but completely lacking in protection.

One of the best Gritstone solos around.
The view between your legs as you grab the jugs is breathtaking !!

Fun but I thought very soft-touch, didnt find the 4c moves - 4b maybe? Similar difficulty to Jitter Face IMO, certainly not much harder and the Kirkus route is harder.
