16m.

Rockfax Description
16m. An exciting expedition. Climb Pile Driver but stay low until it is possible to gain the steep crack running up the right-hand side of the prow. Press on up this rapidly before you get too pumped and finish up the green wall. There are runners up there, honest! © Rockfax

Graeme Hammond 31 Jul, 2017 Lead O/S Cool route, managed to find a duff way of doing the starting moves (part of the VS) as this felt like the crux, rest easy but steep jamming.

Nick Russell 25 Oct, 2015 Lead O/S High in the grade, but it should get more attention. At the top, I traversed back left into Pile Driver because the lichen on the arete was like a soggy mattress.
