16m. Climb diagonally right all the way out to the arete and finish up this in a noble position.

A fine route, though the holly could do with some severe pruning! Scary, but I think the definitive guide has it right at VS 4b.

(soft) VS 4b**. As good as Elis' Eliminate, etc. It may be better with a belay part way up the gully to avoid trailing a rope through the holly bush (which needs cutting back). Great exposure on the upper arete
