10m. Climb an awkward groove and crack on the right side of the face to a ledge then move left via a niche to the arete and continue on its pleasantly exposed left-hand side.

Hmmm. I found this quite difficult for HVD (and I had just soloed the direct). Although I stuck to the arete all the way up rather than following the crack to the ledge (I thought this was a different route from the definitive guide).
