12m. The groove left of the jutting buttress was popular in antiquity, hence the polish. Awkward but well-protected and a nice pitch. The last section is easier than it looks from below.

This climb is now given S 4a, the top feels harder than that more like 4b, if your short(like me), the tops a bit rounded and a longish reach. But the potection is VERY good.

The top move is quite thought provoking especially if you are short (I'm 5' 4"). Very pleased to finish tho. Would highly recommend it. :-)

A move or 2 before the top were the hard ones for me - and I am tall! At least 4a.

The first (slightly sloping) ledge is really quite polished now, both me (seconding) and the leader slipped a bit before steadying ourselves.
