10m. Pull up to the hanging crack in the centre of the South Face and climb it and the wider continuation. Head up this to the crest and the airy summit. All over after the first few moves.

the start moves quite difficult, but once you get the big iron pocket it's about a severe.

Nice to see my favourite route(solo) is a HVS....... VS was always abit tough IMO, MVS would probably be more likely.

If it was a tough VS - how can it be MVS?

Oh no, what i meant was that VS always seemed a bit tough for what it is! ;-) Get there in the end, ey.
