40m. Start left of Needle Arête, and left of the base of the short crack and slab.
1) 4b. Unprotected and mossy. Best left to a dry day. Pull over the short wall and climb carefully up the mossy slab, to reach a sloping ledge.
2) 4b. Climb the wall, left of Needle Arête, pass an overhang on the right; then climb diagonally left, up the slab, to finish up cracks.

adam84 16 Jul, 2014 Lead O/S Brilliant gem of a climb, first pitch is great neat footwork needed climbing is straightforward enough and there is protection where you need it albeit a little spaced out but unless you want a hand rail and some queen lizzy steps cut in it is sufficient, second pitch is where this climb comes into its own, brilliant climbing for a severe, pro where you need it and some nice little moves take you just left of the arete, fantastic climbing for severe grade climbers like me, could benefit with some traffic but it's great none the less

francois 10 Mar, 2007 Lead I'd recommend not bothering with the first pitch, it's ridiculously green and more akin to gardening than to climbing. You can reach the stance by walking in from the left.
