12m.

Rockfax Description
12m. Climb the delicate arete with stretchy moves. Protection at the level of the niche feels distant and it is serious for the short. © Rockfax

βeta: If you can make the reach on the bottom section and haul yourself up on to the ledge it's alright afterwards! ;) Probably worth VS 5a for ths short, not as difficult if your 6ft+
