12m. The right arete to a typical grit exit.

This route is bold lower down and tricky higher up. I thought it was hard for HVS 5b.

How to avoid getting sucked into the holly bush halfway in search of reunners ? and a desperate top out ! at least the gear is good by then.

Total sandbag. If you keep to the left of the arete it is at least 5C with no pro. Top section probably typical grit 5b. Overal harder than adjacent E2.
