12m. The classic of the crag and low in the grade. Using glassy slopers reach a good hold (5b for the short) and attain a standing position. Pad across the scoop and go up a thin crack to a pocket (Hex/cam) and a tricky finish on the left. Barefoot ascents have long been traditional though modern sticky rubber is a much better idea! For those who can't manage the start, the scoop can be accessed from Keep Arete at VS 4c. © Rockfax
