14m. Boulder rightwards up the wall left of the arete to better holds, continue passing a peg and finish in the same line. A crack(le)ing piece of climbing.

A real swine of a move past the depressingly friction-dependent side-pull!! Above it's reassuringly more positive but still committing, especially for shorties to reach the peg! The challenge, grade, and experience, would be significantly reduced with pads.
