8m. "A must-do" Steep, committing climbing, but with good gear, and in a brilliant position.
Place good gear, then commit to the crux sequence, and from there either finish gracefully, or wobble up the juggy arete. [Please avoid placing cams behind the bollard]

Determined to get to the top without falling after being dropped on the first climb of the day... Lovely climb, with just a little echo of Elvis' foot...

First onsite VS A couple of brown trouser moments, would probably have been fine if I thought it was HS. Made one more move upwards before going across for the crux, which i found a lot easier, the top is easy, i just got a bit un-nerved!
