8m.

Rockfax Description
8m. From the block, a short flake gives access to the rib and this is followed on its right-hand side apart from the last couple of moves back on the front face. © Rockfax

βeta: If you take a line directly up the right arete and use no holds round to the right it is about severe 4a. It is a pleasant move over the overlap though.

βeta: agree with all the above...if i could have voted for vdiff on the database i would have done so. that flake is a bit creaky tho'! what a great beginners crag, far better than Birchen for a low stress intro. to grit.

βeta: I'm sure I climbed down this after doing "The Rib". Does that count as an ascent??

βeta: Got to agree with the comments above. The softest VS in the world? A little exposed, when it comes to pro, but I'm afraid I'd rate it as an exposed VDiff - as long as you are happy with having your feet well above your last bit of pro. I used two bits of gear, the first because I thought I was about to find this 4c move, and the second, 'cos I was 10 feet from the top and still hadn't found it, and would have decked out if I'd slipped.

βeta: I would have given this S 4a if the database voting system would have let me downgrade it that far. To be honest, it is barely rates that. May even be HVD.

βeta: VS 4c? You're having a laugh. It doesn't even make Severe. Did anybody actually check this one before putting it in the guide?
