|14m. The magnificent jutting arete is the classic hard route of the crag. Relatively easy climbing up the groove in the lower arete (RPs), and a worrying move right gains some much needed gear (Friends). Back at the arete, make a desperate move to reach a thin crack on the left (crucial Rock 1 or RP3, very hard to place) and finish off the rest of the arete. Please avoid standing on the pebble as there is only half of it left now! Three ropes are normal to protect the line. © ROCKFAX|
