12m.

Rockfax Description
The eye-catching left arete of the wall is a stunning, but bold undertaking. Start beneath the arete on its right-hand side.
Pull onto a slab, then head through the overlaps prior to making a hard move to get established on the wall, and clip the first bolt at 8m. Fine but easier climbing remains passing one more bolt. A skyhook placement is possible before the hard move. © Rockfax
