14m. The blunt arete has a height-dependent start (at least 6a for shorties) and no runners until well above the crux. The short upper arete is much easier with great positions.

A lovely solo (for the tall anyway).

Aye, a bit of a slap for the break if you're 5ft!

at 5ft 7 had to use a crimp out on the right wall and a nice smear to over come the reach .banna wall felt easier!

I think they need to say how far after the crux the runners are! I assumed they would be plentiful, as for the upper arete it's only 2 moves.

I couldn't find any gear in the break after the long reach and had to jump off. I was ok though thanks to a belayer catching me and hitting a lucky landing spot with my feet.
