4m.

Rockfax Description
4m. The slabby arete is short and sweet. A side-runner may help the timid and a small Friend is useful just below the top. © Rockfax

Attempted this on lead (in the snow), got 2/3 of the way up with no gear and all the handholds became wet and slimy. I failed to find the secret jug around the corner and after a lot of faffing about and yo-yo-ing back down to the big break I eventually bottled it. Repeated it on top-rope later and did it clean, kicked myself for missing the crucial hold on the lead attempt.

Solo clean on sight. Went for this straight after Double Crack. Lovely balancy crux think, breathe, move, breathe! Worth HS but only 4a in my book. S 4a with side runners.

Good solo, probably a HS due to the lack of gear and the unprotected crux if lead.
