12m. Start up October Climb to the jammed block then make tricky moves out to the arete. Finish on the right with Diculty.

Very disjointed in difficulty - hence no stars deserved.
"finish more easily" is just plain wrong. It is a 5A sloping
top out with dodgy friends in a flared crack below your feet.

A blatent sandbag at VS 4c! the spaced gear isn't great and the climbing is 5a up the arete to a sloping top out.

A really good sustained climb that certainly deserves its star but probably should be HVS.
