Forbidden Planet** E5 6b

Rockfax Description
The fine flying arete on the right. Climb through the bulges with difficulty to the crucial roof. Undercut past this then sprint for the top either via the left arete or the harder face just right. A couple of large cams are pretty much essential. © ROCKFAX

Toby Dunn - Lead - 30/Aug/08 with JulesV

greedily went for this as last route of the day. went pretty badly! got pumped waiting for alex to find and throw up the crucial cam which, it transpired, he didn't even have out with him.... managed to reverse and get a cam. went back up in the semi dark but too tired and fell off.
