12m. Reach the good ledge on the arete from the left (a jump or move of 4c) then traverse left to finish up the tall flake (VDiff).

Couldn't work this out at all. 'A jump from the left'? That would need the ability to jump up about 6 feet from a standing start surely? The 'polish' was round the front, but this seemed much harder than 4c. Anyway, I bottled it and wandered off, my tail between my legs.

Didn't get the jump thing either! I climbed the arete, which felt like 4c. Just an extended boulder problem really.

I think it means jump from the boulders on the left side of the arete, so its just a jump of around 1 foot to reach the ledge.
