12m. Start as for Peak Technique but, from the ledge, rock onto the right arete and palm a way up this - better holds soon arrive. This was a bold ascent for its day and it still is. The escape route of a leap for the ledge to the right is not recommended.

E3 5b/c is more sensible for someone of average height. Only one tricky move.

E3 5c is more like it. 2 stars as it is eay to step off the slab before you finish if you're so inclined.
