4m.

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

Too short to get a trad grade usually. Probably just a boulder problem.

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.
