14m. To the right of the chimney is a narrow ramp on the wall. Climb this and traverse out left onto the arete. Trend right up the slab and step round the corner then climb a short exposed crack through the bulges until a swing right leads to an easy finish.

The polished start is probably the real crux! The upper hard move is using a poorish pocked to reach the upper break.

Polished start isn't great, the top few moves are trickier and steeper than they look from below.
