Layback boldly up the flying arete. A runner in the next route is only of limited help, but it is all you are going to get unless you come when the snow is deep. © ROCKFAX

Abbed to place the side runner well and gave it a brush - ridiculously scrittly. Really cool. Hard moves are low but the final slap feels well bold.

Psyched. This is my first E5 on sight. Was technically easy just potential for a bad fall.
Kyle Rance - Lead O/S - 21/Sep/13 with Lauren Roberts

As a trad climb this time: still pretty steady with bomber runners in the crack. Potential for a nasty swing tempered by a pad leaning against the wall.

Nice big snow platform!
blaza1 - Solo O/S - Apr/13 with Richard Armour

Still pretty high-ball even with a big snow platform, luckily pretty easy.

Snowball, decent enough platform so why not. Font 5+? Hard to believe this is ever E5 in any condition, but a fun bit of climbing. Have to put my money where my mouth is and come solo it when the snow's gone.
