Comments: I was teaching a scouting class here once and one kid climbed this in 8 seconds. It was very common for them to get their knee stuck in the wider section.

Comments: Lots of fun and quite intricate, but over all too quickly. May be more difficult if you're short. Two ways to start, either in from the right after clipping the bolt, or straight up to the bolt from below, which may be preferable.

Comments: Good advice Nick. That's what I did last time I was visiting - once I got to the top I pulled the rope and dropped the end down for the second to use, and just flicked it around the arete as prgress was made.
