12m. Climb the right arete of the slab directly (5a) using very polished holds, or undercut in from below the roof on the right. From ledges, climb the middle of the face just to the right.

The direct up the arete start is considerably easier than 5b; just a bit of balance onto a pretty large foot hold. No more than easy 5a and thats probably adding something to it.

VD 4a this route. Good value but no particular difficulties and well protected.
