45m. A fine route, but has a poorly portected section. Start 3m left of the pillar
then climb up to the base of the arete, befor climbing it.

βeta: Feels very much E3 compared to all the other E2s at the crag with a serious top half where the gear is either difficult to find or place and mostly poor. The climbing is never difficult but it’s not a route to fall off.

βeta: Beware a suspect flake on the right-wall, near where the initial crack closes. Not an essential hold though.
