[hearse arete, 1 kb]20m. A spectacular-looking outing. Begin directly below the beak and climb onto a ledge on the left with difficulty. Climb up and right then cross the overhang on good holds. Thrilling but manages to feel slightly artificial. © ROCKFAX

Sticking to the underside of the overhang felt Solid E1 but feels pretty artificial. Bottom half of the route was very green and a little slimy which proved to be the crux.

Stupidly tried to follow topo exactly going slightly left first go, ended up in a sweaty sloper nightmare. Second go went slightly right, holds were better.

Tough lower move and intresting top, but a bit unbalanced to be a classic.

way too cold! First bits crap, only the upper exposed bit is worthwhile. Pumped out and fell on 2 cams that held. Lowered down to the ledge, then had another go. Pumpy upper section, all the holds are shelves but your feet are in front of you and don't take much weight.
