10m. An impressive line but usually dirty and seldom climbed. Traverse out right to enter the inverted scoop in the overhangs and exit rapidly up a short crack. Unprotected and harrowing.

A nice route, with lots of variety - easy slab, awkward scoop, small overhang and short finishing crack. Shame it gets the 'often dirty' label because actually it's fine. However, the gear is poor and low down, so I would strongly recommend leaning over the top to see what pro goes in the final crack, and to identify the good bit of the runnel (as you have to reach through blind). Not all that hard, but exciting when you commit to the scoop!
