Trivial but popular. Climb the central chimney then traverse the break leftwards into the middle of the slab. Make a tricky mantelshelf move and continue delicately.
considerably harder for shorties after the break - 5c?
I'd agree - at 5'10" I could reach the good pocket, but if you are much shorter you have to do a considerably harder move!
Its lonely up there with your feet in the break.
I'd agree with the reach thing. I couldn't reach the pocket and it's a very hard pull, worth at least 5c. I got Satin 2nd go but couldn't do the 5b move!?
It is 5c if you're short. But then lots of things are, and you can just escape off right after the crux if you can't reach. Seems a bit trivial and artificial for a star, to be honest.
A very enjoyable route. Copious protection before the move up, followed by a bit of a run out.
