12m.

Rockfax Description
12m. Devious though with some good moves and a certain logic to the line. Follow Primadonna up the right-hand side of the arete until forced out right below an overlap. Pull over this to reach a second overlap then trend back left (beware of a loose flake) to the upper arete and an exposed finish. © Rockfax

βeta: Found the step up and right to be the technical crux as I couldn't quite reach the good handhold from where the footholds peter out. The mental crux is going left again and commiting to going up the arete. Have some faith, the difficulties are short lived!

βeta: A good, interesting route which might be 3 stars except for the very dubious flake (and thus gear) below the final crux.

βeta: I failed on this route. The move up after the traverse back left looked too hard and I was too scared. Might be an idea to take micowires to protect the traverse right as otherwise it would feel quite bold and the move is quite hard.
