16m. The stepped left-hand arete of the quarry is very pleasant, and, although mild, there is no protection until above the crux.

Easy (for VS) but you might as well solo it.

If you insist on falling make sure you land around the left of the arete. much more pleasant.

Not convinced about 4b, I don't normally climb 35 odd feet of 4b without any gear, so it must be only 4a.

The crux can be protected by a good microwire.
