8m. Take the right arete of the central blocky recess and the thin crack directly above it on holds that are generally disappointing.
A nice gem with some interesting moves- nice crux at the top with laybacking aretes and finger cracks. Perfect Wires throughout.
Felt more like 5b first time around, and whilst there's plenty of gear, it's very tiring to place. Very demoralising - every time you think you're going to get a rest you find the holds are even worse than below.
This route is deceptively steep! Looking at it from below it almost looks slabby (think I must need new contact lenses), but looking from the side reveals its true angle. I agree with Chris that it's pretty tiring, and the holds aren't as good as they look, my topout was a beached whale impression! It's a nice challenge though, and worthy of the star.
Generally rather offputting.
