20m. Start a metre right of the right-hand crack of Treebeard.
Boulder up a short wall to a small ledge (thread). Move up through a slight bulge on hidden holds following a shallow groove to reach a larger ledge. Step left towards the right facing hanging corner and climb this until it is possible to swing left onto the rib and join the finish of Treebeard.

βeta: No abseil tat any more on tree beard. Probably for good reason (just look at the roots). Also no tat on the ill looking ash above it. The whitebeam above that is alive and well rooted and might be tat-worthy. But might just be easier to ab off the chunky tree with good tat a 10m shuffle to the left (looking into the crag) in stead.

βeta: Just above the bushy ledge there is a wobbly hold ~5kg. It looks like the obvious hand/foot hold and crack down the side has been well worn by gear. Had a quick go at removing it but it seems to be wedged. Just go easy on it and I wouldn't use it for protection. The next obvious hold after this is also wobbly and the topout of all these routes right of Necromancer is gradually collapsing.
