50m. This is a distinct route from Nether Red Brook not just an alternative top out. Some startling rocks to climb under and over with an exciting cave exit for the slim at one point. Don't try this if you are on your own. If you got stuck you'd be a long time being found.
Possible to skirt some difficulties but never less than grade 1.

Pete Pozman 2 Apr, 2014 Solo O/S Descended the main challenges of Nether Red Brook until an alternative route to the plateau became obvious. A separate route with a spectacular cave finish for the slim.
