15m. The faint arete between cat's whiskers and the Prominent line of Nijinski. The moves are described as humorous by the SMC - you have been warned!

6c for shorties apparently.

pre-placing protection is advised by climbing cats whiskers to the break and leaning across to the route

used to be E4

j_nelson 22 Jun, 2016 Lead RP Amazing route with a hard crux for the short, comparable in difficulty to Dog Eat Dog at Bowden. More than a full grade harder than Nijinski, so hard E5 for this, soft E4 for Nijinski?

Denpov 7 Aug, 2012 TR dnf Had to try it but way to difficult for me. I will try it again when not as tired just for the hell of it. :o) Self belay. Needed brushed as getting no traffic.

Dr Toph 9 Jul, 2010 Solo RP Guess this was a headpoint (shame on me), after sliding off the on-sight a while back, and resorting to a wee bit top-rope a week ago, I still hadn't linked it. Brushed the holds today and went for it :)
