14m. Climb a short flake just right of the arete then make awkward moves to better holds. Continue steeply keeping right of the arete throughout and using loads of rounded holds.

STEADY FOR E1. CRUX MOVE LEAVING LOWER FLAKE CRACK AIDED BY GOOD HIDDEN POCKET ON LEFT.
EASIER CLIMBING IF YOU LIKE ROUNDED BREAKS.

It's the sort of route thats quite awkward and bold to do first time, but once you've sussed it out, would feel much easier. Quite pleasant though

This felt quite ackward and a little bold to me - not sure I like this super-rounded break to break climbing.

This is definately one to lead to feel the grade. I seconded this years ago and remember it as a cruz but hesitated on the lead...

Thoroughly enjoyable route on golden grit, easier than I expected.
