Rockfax Description
The steep arete is technical as far as a band of crusty rock. Step right and climb the difficult slanting groove, and the headwall. Holds were chipped off after the first ascent but it is still climbable at the same grade. Some ancient bolts provide much-needed protection. © Rockfax

Led placing gear on lead, apart from a cheeky pre-placed sling which was no longer conveniently placeable en route as a crimp was broken. Great route and great to do it with the first ascensionist.

Broke the first crimp/foothold on the slab still claimable at the same grade!? Lead with gear in place! Second e6 climbed the bottom badley giving the route every opportunity to throw me off but it didn't! The crux whent really well once I waited my foot properley. One of the best climbing experiences I've ever had, lessons learnt, now to apply,

Well when you have 2 hours to kill when the misses is at the garden centre what else is there to do? Awesome route, just before the mega mist consumed it. Cheers for the pysche Andy.
