12m. Take the steep and pumpy jamming crack to the niche where it joins and finishes as for Acarpous.

A butch approach on good jams leads to a good rest, before the more technical traverse, out and up through the finishing niche of Acarpous. Good gear protects the hard finish, although you may swing a bit if you come off!!

Prefered the arete start 4ft to the right of the crack.

Yes, pretty butch. The good jams disappear at 12 feet and don't reappear for a few feet more..getting to the rest quite tricky also. Finishing by the niche not that hard.

The first crack I've HAD to fully tape my hand for.

Well protected, definitely an E for effort climb.
