15m.

Rockfax Description
The continuous crack just left of the arete is tricky to enter (jig to the left) and is good above. Large gear helps but isn't essential. © ROCKFAX

Slipped on a foothold on easy bit - not properly paying attention! Good lesson - scraped front of shin means I still have a reminder a few days later.

nice moves and not nearly as awkward and butch as it looks from the floor

very unusually I'd forgotten I'd 2nded this before until I saw my logbook, so felt like an on-sight, but in reality a repeat. Awkward and hard for the grade.

A hard to work out crux, I used the crack and arete in a sort of layback in the end. Big gear not essential, a sneaky .5 friend and medium nut in the crack in the crack, (so to speak} makes the crux safe.
