24m. The soaring arete is a fearsome challenge; a western End of the Affair perhaps? From the first stance on Central Climb move out to the arete and climb it firing on all cylinders. There is gear low down but a speedy belayer may still be needed. Very balancy, very scary and very, very good! © Rockfax
