14m. The upper arete is gained from the right. Pleasant and poorly protected, it features a big square chipped hold. The Direct Start up the wall to the left of March Hare is a poor 6b.

If you're tall or just very agile, you can do the crux via an exilarating heel hook round the arete!

A direct start up the wall 4ft to the left of March Hare is excellant but scary E1 5b

A one move wonder but a nice one.

My first ever 'HVS'. Its really a run out VS, though, with good rests all the way.
