25m. Eliminate and contrived but with excellent climbing. Avoid straying onto Digitalis until the shared jug rest and avoid bridging or gear in Jamie Jampot. From the start of Digitalis climb directly up the wall (microcams essential) to a good undercut in a small obvious overlap. Move up and right (first crux) then back left to a big flake and rest. Continue straight up until level with the huge jug at the top of the flake on Digitalis, take this and rest. Traverse horizontally right (second crux) past a long flake (possible wires but would be hard to place), across India and to the arete. Climb the arete spectacularly but more easily and finish up the final crack of Arc of the Covenant.
Harder for the short. Could be 6b. Without wires in the central flake a fall for second or leader is serious.

masa-alpin 24 Oct, 2016 2nd dog Seconded Henward's first ascent. He took an advantage of his long reach up to the limit, which is 50cm longer than mine. That meant I had to use a different set of (tiny and marginal) holds. Both the lower and upper crux moves required a top of my effort (with multiple falls at the lower crux). F7b/+? Climbing was actually good, but a shame it is an eliminate, crossing 2 existing routes, and the moves after the upper crux (still 6a) are in no-fall zone for the leader.

henwardian 24 Oct, 2016 Lead RP Cleaned and practiced extensively. I'm not strong enough to place the gear on lead in the flake, hence the name. Maybe it's only one star but It really is nice climbing and I'd love to see someone repeat it.
