14m. From just right of the arete a swift layaway leads to a tricky mantelshelf. Continue into a shallow groove to ledges on the right then head up the final wall. Turin Finish, E2 5c - More exciting. Move left from the groove and climb the arete initially on the right then on the left.

Its not bold. You can get gear in
Goi Ashmore - 11/Apr/03

A bit unbalanced. Both the grades derive from the hernia-inducing mantel low down (one legged squats or knees useful), above it's easier and much more pleasant. Gear is esoteric and fiddly but just enough.
