12m. The initial difficulties on the direct route can be avoided by a pleasant traverse in from the top of the slabby boulder on the left. Using the upper break is the easiest way of doing it.

Improved by starting up the boulder from the gully below the route. It's not clear what level the traverse is supposed to be, if it's along the lowest break above the overhang then it's closer to S than VDiff, the next break up is easier.

Starting up the leaning groove and traversing as low as possible makes it a worthwhile Severe.
