10m. The bold face with hard moves just before it eases.

There's good gear for the top moves (5a/5b) and the hardest move (5c) is fairly low down.

The hardest moves are just before the break and gear. If you are 5 foot 4 or shorter there is a hard 6a move moving left onto the arete before being able to reach the break. Unprotected 6a moves 7 metres up, surely E4? Still really enjoyed it though despite my terrified state.

hmmm more E4 than Brush Off but still sweet...

thin balancey 5c move leaving the low ledge (rh on sidepull/undercut) after which its about HVS 5b standard.

An almost entirely innacurate description as others have pointed out. You got the "face" part right though :P. Mild for the grade, the greeness is no problem if it's dry, and pretty nice moves too.

A good route - bold, but still mild at the grade.
