16m. The left arete of the face has a tricky start, pity the 1st bolt is above the hard move! The upper slab is easier. Not in current guidebook.

A good warm-up - deteriorates higher up, but good steady climbing beforehand.

i suggest doing black helicopter ride first, then lowering down this route to preplace an extender and preclip the rope for the first few moves. the landing is far too grim to contemplate!

The start of this could use a reachy symbol. I'm 5''5' and couldn't reach any of the larger holds at anything like 6a.

not really a good warm up considering the high first bolt. Black Helicopter ride or First and Last are .much better options

Having returned to this I do agree the first bolt is too high and is worth pre-clipping.
