Tricky little mantelshelf, with bold climbing afterwards. the move round the arete seemed quite committing and suddenly steep! hard at VS.

Nice, varied climbing. Shuffling round the arÍte was pretty awkward though!

One pitch. After excavating a cam placement at foot level on the first ledge, found myself calling Joe Brown a rude name when I reached the midway ledges. More like Vs 4b with a 4c move. Quite commiting. Enjoyed the squat shuffle rightwards, but found the pull out a bit spooky. Definitely a varied and interesting route.

In one pitch! Really nice route - it's a mini adventure. Great rock-over and mantle, bold slab, tricky move onto the arete then an awesome finish. Did the line as it shows in BMC, going directly up the arete from the ledge and not using the centre crack as it shows in Rockfax. Not sure which is the correct line? Oh and had to share the halfway ledge with a sheep...

Ace climb. Bit of everything. Nice rockover onto the chockstone, bold slab, committing traverse and juggy finish.
