8m. Climb the arete to the block overhang and pull over this with a long reach for a distant jug and quick sprint.

Definitely worth it's star, an attractive and prominent route with a bold finish.

I did this route years ago when I was starting to climb and didn't know any better about grades. I have just done it this weekend and would stick with a grade of VS, 4c as you can get a good wire just under the overlap on the arete

Good gear below the overhang - a bit of a long fall if you come off above the overhang but with friends it's not too hard to protect. Nice finish.

top section was airy and blind for feet not a great route but it was ok.
