16m. An impressive arete pitch. Fortunately there are more holds and runners than appearances suggest, though it is still bold!

Great route, but the runners are quite well spaced.

A bit bold at first, but the crux is well protected and seems to require either thin fingers or a long reach

There might be more runners than appearances suggest but I wouldn't like to take a fall on any of the first three that are shown in the picture. A bit bold for the grade. The crux can also be done with a wrist jam!

more holds than appearances suggest, sod all runners mind, quite exciting to place your first bit of gear about 12 or 13m up!
did it with an interesting wrist jam/bar thing.
very bold, but protected where it counts.

Protectable with RPs low down but the placements take a bit of ferreting out.
