14m. Struggle with the roof crack if you must (or walk round) then from the block balance out left then climb the slab to the base of the wide crack/groove of Flower Power Arete. Move out left again and carefully climb the exposed arete. Not well-protected so care is required.

Line in WG guide not accurate. Scary route, you can lace the flake but it's rather hollow.

I followed the WG line, which seemed fine - lovely route. Good pro tricky but available (don't read on if you don't want clues). After optional pull out from cave, you can tie down a thin sling at base of the scary slab. At wide crack, place large friend, and link it to runners in creaky flakes on L to avoid rope drag.
