24m. The soaring arete is a fearsome challenge; a western End of the Affair perhaps? From the first stance on Central Climb move out to the arete and climb it firing on all cylinders. There is gear low down but a speedy belayer will still be needed.

A superb route in an superb position. The crux moves are easier the taller you are. I am 6'2" and found the crux easy 6b but I would give the route top end E7 for the long neck required. A must do route!
