The blunt right arete. The tall will find this a very soft touch while the short will find it virtually impossible. Quite delicate and powerful at the same time. Either traverse left or finish up the left hand side of the overhangs above the ledge - this doesn't change the grade.

climbed well up to the crux move, so probably 5c for the bit I did

Found it extremely desperate!

A number of attempts and not far away from latching this.

Thrutchy slaps for all the pockets and side-pull...then a huge throw/reach for the ticked crimper on the face allowing me to get the good pockets/jugs...not over from here though as latching the slopers at the top in less than perfect conditions is HARD!!! Took me a few goes to stick the slopers...
