60m, 2 pitches. The intimidating steepening groove that leads to the right end of the massive roof of Heaven Can Wait, then gains the wild arete and finishes a little more easily. High in the grade.

kieranor ?Jul, 2018 Lead O/S Psyched ! Bottom isn't great but the climbing gets steeper and better as you go with plenty of laybacking and reasonably good spaced gear although could have done with my purple cam higher up ! Stepping out onto the arete felt really cool
