16m. Another big pitch with excellent bold climbing. Start at the right-hand side of the green streak at a shallow groove. Climb to the bulges then trend right through these to a crack. Swing swiftly back left and pull onto a ledge right on the arete. Finish up a thin crack splitting the top wall.

Another route needing a *** tag. One of the best routes in the area.

Well protected with a good rack of cams. Big holds.

Correctly described as bold, at least initially, I thought the last move is clearly 5c - J Redhead avoided it!

J. Redhead avoided it, because it was filthy. They cleaned it up and did it next visit, i believe.
