12m. The bold arete by some frantic moves to a poor rest on the left, followed by the even more committing upper section, scareeey.

Blimey this is bold! The climbing is easier than you would expect but the exposure is ridiculous!

Tough start soon easing to to an absorbing but exposed arete. Fantastic.

It would be E6 if it wasn't so escapable after the technical crux.
True on-sights, without loitering at the rest, would be very impressive from anyone.
