16m.

Rockfax Description
16m. An exciting expedition. Climb Pile Driver but stay low until it is possible to gain the steep crack running up the right-hand side of the prow. Press on up this rapidly before you get too pumped and finish up the green wall. There are runners up there, honest! © Rockfax

High in the grade, but it should get more attention. At the top, I traversed back left into Pile Driver because the lichen on the arete was like a soggy mattress.
