14m. Unbalanced but the lower section has some excellent climbing and the upper section is not without interest. Climb the rib to a crusty hollow then stretch right to access the hanging flake with difficulty, continue up a tricky groove to ledges. An easier but rather wide corner crack is all that remains.

Into the scoop then a tricky move right; a long reach and high feet then required to make a committing move up the crack. Thereafter an anticlimax, but still excellent.

this route was awful in my opinion, and also quite hard for E2. there are two good friend placements up to the right before the groove however. the final crack is no pushover, take very large friends.
