15m. The huge block leaning on the west side of the summit of the Rosa Pinnacle.
Climbable on its west side- an exercise in pure friction. Descent is by the same route on all fives.

Nettle 23 Aug, 2002 Solo rpt ** - 10m - 5a Met up with Chris Harper and a couple of his mates after driving over to Ardrossen, then taking the ferry, before mountain biking up Rosa Glen and running the last stage. Then I soloed up the first pitch of the South Ridge and met Chris in time to lead the S Crack. We then banged up the route and I soloed the Rosetta Stone before heading down to the bike and having a great ride down to catch the ferry and get back to the mainland and drive home!
