16m. Climb the thin crack on the right then make a committing traverse leftwards until it is possible to climb up and left to finish steeply up the right-hand side of the arete. Graded a gripping VS for many years!
a direct start on the left (just by the cutaway) is good value at E1 6b.
The traverse is unprotected but easy (4c max). The crux comes on the left arete. Fully protected to catch a fall.
Didn't think the crux was the left arete! Start much harder then once on the traverse your away
Did it way back in 1991, from what I remember a nice absorbing climb, nice traverse left, to a wee' contemplation rest before ascending the arete! Excellent climb, worthy of the two stars!
