16m. The elegant slanting groove is a classic with a steep start then a fine flake forming a mild uphill hand-traverse. The initial wide section is awkward (thread runner), after that get shimmying. The perfect place to start your comeback maybe.

The edge of the groove makes a perfect tightrope on a day without too much wind.

A great route. Loved the slabby finish. A real 'run up the rock' job.

What a route, why climb any harder when it's this much fun?! Even in 40+MPH winds it's not too bad.

Rather disappointing I thought. The initail crack is the crux, and nothing special. The top 'flake' is more like Mod/Diff and rather an anticlimax. Not as good as Phallic Crack for instance, I even enjoyed Arete and Crack more...

Good, but not THAT good
