8m. A technical start on tiny holds but it eases rapidly after the first couple of pulls.

Not sure if the hold close to the arrete is in, but without it this is damn hard! The main problem (after the first move) I found was the sandy top-out.

Simple when you get off the floor, don't remember the arete being in.

Obviously the arete is off route, but there's a crimp nearby that may or may not be considered ok. I agree with Paul, this hold makes things much easier - I pointed it out to some floundering boulderers at the weekend and they did it no trouble after that.

either use the 2 slopey crimps and pop or do some horrendous sequence involving undercuts. i found the former method easier...
