14m. The square-cut arete is climbed on its left-hand side and becomes harrowing towards the top. Staying on the arete is best, trending left is the easier option and is nearer HVS 5b. From the ledge, escape right or finish up April Arete.
A super little solo, feels longer because of the climbing and position. Pad out the landing with rucksacks (or a mat) to prevent an unpleasant fall.
The wall to the left is another fun solo - E1 5b ?
Quite commiting near the top of the arete. Solo to the left is only HVS I reckon.
The definitive guide gives a fairer assessment of what to expect from both routes (as solos without mats - alternatively would both make good highballs) - unless you're of the outdated mindset where ankle-breaking groundfall routes should be undergraded compared to their protected counterparts.
