12m. The square groove just left of the arete is followed to half-height then step left around the arete and climb a curving crack to a sloping ledge. Finish up rounded rock above.

Lovely climbing around the arete and up the curving crack. Move off the ledge up the overhang is perhaps 4c, especially for the short.

Great round the arete but the overhang is way too hard for the sorter among us!

Good varied route, worthy of more than its one star i think. The move off the midheight ledge is one that i found harder to contemplate than execute- it looks unlikely but does go at 4b.

I'm guessing that whoever voted this HVS (and even Nick Smith perhaps) didn't spot that getting off the ledge is dead easy slightly to the left, then trending rightwards. Good route though.

Needs a 'reachy' symbol. The move off the ledge is much harder (and bolder) if you can't reach the good holds and protection.
