Fun solo, but must be tough reaching starting holds if less than 6 ft. I assume OK to use the pocket on the right (not needed for DIY) to reach the ledge, and then the arete a couple of feet above the ledge to top out.

I had no problems starting this despite being well short of 6ft. The reach for the shelf would be a different matter if the pocket wasn't in (but why wouldn't it be). Worth doing while you're there for the others on the wall.

Agree with Nai - the start is fairly hard, but not especially reachy.

Desperate start and can reach the ledge from undercut without using the pocket
