11m. An immaculate thin crack climb with good gear but hard climbing.

If you're a normal E3 6a leader you're going to this route (along with Vertical Games )very hard to flash!!Both routes would be 6c+ if bolted

Hard onsight for the grade.
The gear is reasonable but a bit fiddly to place.
Overall much harder than Butter Arete, it felt almost as bold on the top wall.

Nice route - Good medium and small wires and good holds all the way - worth the 3 stars

Does exactly what it says on the tin and just as much fun as it looks :P. Some good moves and the crux is rather obtuse to sort out. The highlight is perhaps the best belay position ever at the top. Seems fair at the grade as it's sustained but good wires where it matters.
