12m. Climb the curving crack to a good ledge then climb the wall on the right passing a slanting crack. The arete to the left of the start is Short and Sweet - 6a.


Phew! what a pumper! big sideways reach for the left hand, right joins it, then a full reach with the right with your left locked off! all this with nothing for your feet! burned me out!

Pretty tough for 5a, and would definately be easier for the tall (I'm 176cm) who can just lank through the crux move to the good holds

Reaching out left to the middle of the wall was ok, but the moves up using the slanting crack and a rock-over (on the hold your hands on!) were tres powerful. Very nice move though, and there are a few things for your feet (if you don't mind smearing).

Single, well protected, slightly reachy move - with a big rest before and after. VS 5a!
