10m. The arete is approached over a tricky bulge and climbed on its left-hand side by laybacking. Markedly easier for the tall.

Without a doubt a tall mans (persons) problem. I couldn't reach the break and it meant a thin smear and step up with the gear at my feet..felt just like the move on Counts Arete...

Well protected lay-backing my arse! There's a big ledge you're gonna hit if you fall. Safe 5b if you're 6ft, sketchy 6a if you're 5'6"! (luckily I'm the former!)

Very reach dependent. This is only 5b if you can reach the next break - I'm 5.11" and it was a stretch for me.
