12m. The centre of the first roof is passed with difficulty using well-chalked slots in the roof to gain a flatty above - a great V4 (6b) problem, though the very tall can just jump past it! The final roof is crossed via a strenuous stretch, with good Friend protection and is well worth doing.

Poor description of the boulder problem, which only a giant could possibly jump past, the meat of it being the revolting rockover. I suppose the V4 grade is sort of OK for the stupid non-problem to the flatty, but I think Remergence is a grade harder than the arete problem, and so V5. Font 6b often given is a sandbag.

Sandbag or not, it is still a route and the crux is the desperate long reach at the lip. Well protected but a long reach.
