12m. Climb the square-fronted buttress direct with the crux passing the low bulge by a fingery stretch. Using either arete lowers the grade to 5b, not bad for an ancient Severe.

Just one hard move, which is well protected with (carefully placed) Friend-1. Nice route.

My 'carefully' placed freind 1 decided to rip sending me the 12feet or so onto the rocks below,resulting in me bouncing off one rock on my cocksix to another on my head (i dint have a lid on). it was a very painful second.

HVS 5b (if the gear holds), otherwise E1

It's definately 5c if you don't use the aretes. You can also get a wire and a good friend placement.

Avoiding the arete with hands is easy - avoiding it with toes is much harder! E1 5c and quite nice.
