20m. A good direct finish which includes the last move of Wurlitzer that seems easier with this approach. Not in current guidebook.

Hint: unclip the last bolt below the start of the roofs to avoid terminal rope drag! Shorties will have a hard time on this one...

Great route .. sustained approach to the bulge at the top. Very long reach required to make the top crux move. Reachy symbol required

Contrary to the two previous comments a short (ish) person I know did this route with no problems by using a hold out left. It does make for a fingery move but as long as you don't attempt the reach then it is still possible at the grade of 6c.

Definitely harder than 6c for the short.

The finishing jug looks like it has recently snapped off, there's a good flat edge left but the move is very slightly harder now.

I agree, there must have been rock fall, i did the neibouring route wurlitzer jukebox@7a and found the last move desperate. Even after a rest it took a couple of efforts.

Considerably better finish than the regular route - out in space on jugs (rather than traversing on polish).
