16m. Delicate and low in the grade - but precarious and scary! Climb the shallow groove just to the left of the nose (technical crux) then swing right and up to a deep horizontal break. From good runners, teeter up the bold feeling rib to the final juggy and well-positioned arete.

THE ROUTE GETS E1 BECAUSE ITS BOLD.
THE HOLDS ARE GOOD AND IT IS SAID YOU CAN GET A SMALL ALIEN IN A HORIZONTAL ON THE BOLD RIB.

Don't know about the alien, but this is a damn good route, start to finish. The middle rib requires a cool head and the top arete is pure joy.

Nice route, just get on it and go for it, don't watch someone ekse lead it first the sparsity of gear makes it look a frightener.

a very nice route. the moves are pretty easy so it doesn't really feel too bold.

A great route. Got a tiny cam into the horizontal on the rib - for peace of mind only. The moves up the rib are pretty straightforward - and a little scary.

Very easy for E1 - crux is first two or three moves. The moves up the rib are quite easy once you commit to them. The finish is great!

middle part has good deck out potential , the small cam placement is psychological protection only

Can get a okish small nut in the horizontal on the rib. Still feels bold though.

Very good route from start to finish, get a small cam in at the break and go for it, bold mid section but positive holds, my second E1

I wouldn't say particularly low in the grade.
Holds on the middle section are not as good as they look from below. Top section is pure jug pulling joy.
Great route!

Only E1 for the short! At 6' or so this is more like a high end VS. Nice climb tho - pleasing moves.

Technically easy after the start, but you wouldn't want to fall off ...
