12m. Bold and satisfying. From the ledge on the right traverse out left to reach the airy arete and balance up this to a juggy finish.

A nice climb that's worth it's increased stars. The spaced gear is actually rather good, whilst the so-called "juggy finish" is home to an elegant and finely placed crux - and then you get the jugs. Very pleasant.

a bit filthy, and not the best rock around, but beautiful climbing. i found all the worthwhile gear (that which didn't rip striaght through the sugary rock when gently tugged) to be in the same break. very likable though, and like your man says, a finely positioned crux.

The top is very simalar to Slowhand next-door - two low sidepulls for hands and a pocket to step in to. Bold, worth E1, but not 5b at all.

I thoguht the crux was the start, whchi was smeary, insecure and completely unprotected.
