18m. The right arete of the buttress is approached through bulges (big thread) and climbed with a brief excursion onto its right-hand side and a finish up the front. Easier for the tall.

Easy for the tall (6 foot), and I would have thought desperate for the short (less than 5 8); I am 5 10 (with bent elbows!). Only tricky for a short section with the gear below your feet - maybe a little heart flutter.
