20m. A great climb. The right arete of the buttress is reached by zig-zagging through the overhangs, followed by well positioned and sustained climbing, until it is possible to move out left to the finish of Pillar Front.

made better by pulling through the overlap on pillar front then heading straight up the arete. one of the best VS's on grit.

Too escapable. Quite tricky if you stick to the rib throughout, but it's easy to wander right towards the inviting cracks...
