18m. A great route. From the left edge of the buttress traverse out right round the arete to reach a ledge above the roofs. Trend up and right, past another ledge to reach a shallow groove which leads to the top of the tower. A short Diff down-climb is the easiest way off the back. Photo below featuring Dave Spencer.

A classic trip for the severe leader, exposed intimidating and with fine climbing...and what a summit!

The move off the first ledge is quite reachy, definitely harder for the short.
