24m.

Rockfax Description
The astounding axe-edge arete may by the most impressive piece of grit in the Peak, imagine being up there! Gain the arete from 8m up Route 1 via a tricky mantel and desperate leftwards traverse. The terrifying final section is out there and proves to be only marginally easier. Well-named indeed. © Rockfax

Seb Grieve ??, 1990 Lead RP Felt low in the grade. Wore slippers so that I could feel the footholds on the traverse. Top is easy if you are lanky. 2nd ascent.
