Rockfax Description
Climb the upper arete starting from a ledge on the left - a belayer is a good idea if you don't want to fall miles. Swing onto the arete and layback smartly, keeping on its left-hand side. Pulling around to the right is easier but feels a bit pointless. © Rockfax

Also with a spotter/belayer tied to the rock. More like a roped boulder problem/solo. Few good moves

Soft E2 but footholds are green and sandy, wouldn't want to fall off

LakesWinter 08/May/11 Lead O/S

Easiest E2 ever?

With a spotter/belayer tied to the rock I reckon its E1
