10m. Stride across the smelly 'toilet-pit' then follow the curving flake out right to a poor rest and tricky moves to grasp the glorious flutings. Making sure the ropes don't jam, finish easily.

an exellent route which deserves the three stars it gets in the bmc guide. sustained laybacking and under cuts with perfect pro all the way. when you're on the easy finish after getting the big flute on the arete make sure you're ropes dont jam behind it , mine did and it was abugger to free them.

It look a bit intimidating at first, but it is not too bad. Only hard bit is get yourself balanced when getting round onto the big flute. Lovely route and worthy of 3 stars.

A good route, not nearly as evil as it looks, more committing than actually hard. Good climbing but definitely doesn't have the grandeur to deserve 3 stars, 2 is fair.
