6m. The blunt arete is climbed on its right-hand side and has runners at two-thirds height. The final section can be leapt up or crept up depending on your style - or total lack of!

We found the route and Nick set off on sight fell off a few times before sneaky creeping gave success. He handed me his chalkbag (a large white carrier bag full of chalk and wrappers) and I set off, 1 double dyno later and the top was mine, just!

Sorry to be annoying, but I did this route in April 1997.I`m pretty sure I wrote it up to the new routes people. Here`s the description I wrote in my guidebook anyway:

Hey Jude E15C

The Friendly but deceptive arete right of Wriggler.
Climb the arete to a break, good cams using a foot jam make a long move to the top.

I can`t beleive it now gets E4 6b

I presumed it had probably been done before me anyway.

This is the arete left (not right) of The Wriggler.
