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.

Masa led it in one pitch. Exceptionally good, not as good as Pillar but still amazing.

Excellent route! Done in a pure style, following the arete. Enough gear was found.

Last route of the trip. Reasonable small wires followed by 5m of unprotected tenuous climbing to top of the initial groove led to some hollow and friable holds and no more gear. Eventually climbed a bit higher to find 2 unconvincing wires and more friable holds. Backed off to the rest at top of groove and decided it wasn't worth it so traversed into pillar and down climbed that instead

Forced on to slab finish by the onset of rain, probably E1 like this.

A bit hairy up the arete, done as single pitch.

Great line, almost as good as the pillar itself. 3 stars, works fine as single pitch.
