24m.

Rockfax Description
24m. A hard, bold and devious route that plugs the gap in the centre of the wall. Follow Bachelor's Left-hand to the top of its crack then move left and teeter up the vague rib to good holds on Caricature. Move over to the right then climb the head-wall from right to left (runner on the right) aiming for a final thin seam. © Rockfax

βeta: The lower arete / Caricature linkup has now been led at E5/6 6b (tech. crux still that of Caricature). Starting from Rib Chimney, with a runner low down in that route.

northy1983 3 Oct, 2017 Lead RP I roped it a good few times that it felt comfortable, but a fall from the top of the headwall would be quite a disaster. Sustained throughout, with only a rest on the half way ledge to give you time to get even more scared. Almost pumpy and possibly low e8 territory? Possible to finish right instead of going left.

Jon Read 22 Apr, 2006 Lead RP Casually flashed by Andi on toprope after my ascent. First time we met actually! I think I've called it the "Bachar-Yerian of grit" before now.
