10m. Climb the steepening right side of the arete to a tricky landing onto a shelf using a huge hidden 'bucket'.

The line in the topo shows this going up the left side of the arete and is therefore (I think) wrong. Shouldn't it go up the wall to the right of the arete? Harder than Titania unless you're tall enough to get the hidden jug before you move up. And the correct route name (in the 1983/89 guides) is Iltis.

Mammoth blind reach required to good hold/bucket. I couldn't reach it until I'd moved up and I'm 6'2".

Quite stiff for HS 4b, if you can't reach the jugs from below (neither I nor my mate could) you have to use rather rounded slopers (although theres a good hold high on the arete for lay-backing off).
