Rockfax Description
The impressive and well-named blowy arete has low gear (small wires) and mostly good holds. It proves to be bold and airy with some suspect rock. © Rockfax

Great climbing, that's quite easy for the grade, but certainly run out. Not sure about these small wires it talks about. I got some pretty big ones in there.

Very good if a little unnerving, especially the cornflake top-out.

Bit of Millstone esoterica it seems, but I'd been meaning to do it for ages. Got quite jittery with onset of run-out-ness but the moves are very steady. Good name, bit gusty up there!
