14m. The axe-edge rib in the gully has a delicate layback start (almost worth a star) - avoid the crack on the left at the grade - leading to easier climbing up the broad rib above.

Which side do you climb this on? The left side seems easyer cos you can reach out left to the crack to stop you from barndooring or is that cheating?

See route description. Climbing the arete on it's left-hand side without the crack seems a little stiff for VS (especially the mantel to the top of the arete - scary!). The right-hand side is slightly easier, but what's this "almost" worth a star - very short, but very good arete climbing!
