Rockfax Description
One of the major routes of the 1980s up the soaring angular arete. A hard starting section enables the sanctuary of the bore holes to be reached (gear). Continue with rising anxiety to a final wild leap which is roughly twice as far off the ground as your last runner. There is a fixed belay on a bunch of pegs at the top. Climbed on the left-hand side is Re-mastered Edge, E7 6c. © Rockfax

Strictly speaking a redpoint as I TR'd it in 1995. No falls and no further inspection on this day though so it felt onsight to me! An amazing route and a big bolt of adrenaline as I made the top slap.
