20m. Start from a tiny ledge above the waterline (try keeping the ropes out of the water) and swing left onto the front face at the earliest opertunity. Climb a tough bulge (ancient bolt runner) to reach the overhang and a junction with Complete Streaker. Finish easily.

That bolt could appear on Time Team, so don't set off thinking it's worth clipping. Pretty bold without it too.

Still there! I though it was dead when I did the route 10 years ago!

Hmmm. No wonder I failed on this. Did feel quite hard for 5c! The bolt in combination with a small wire and big cam felt adequate, though.

direct start up the left side of the arete is 6b and good.
