22m. The appealing but ferocious thin crack up the right side of the blunt arĂȘte is given grades varying form E2 to a solid E4 6a. Consensus from the 6 voters here would suggest E3 would be fair but beware;) Abseil down the corner just right to a hanging belay on good cams just above high tide. Move left under the roof to good holds just above it. From these a sustained crux on poor slots and nicks up the crack with sparse protection eventually leads to some respite and a steadier finish.

Another vote for E4, and it wasn't especially greasy. Harder than Nuckelavee.

Got on this thinking it was E2 5b, it wasn't... It was also quite greasy (read: wet), hence having an even tougher time than I probably should have; however, it felt pretty desperate and also pretty serious. Micro-cams were essential, as was a willingness not to let go lest you fall into the sea...
