Apple ArÍte Direct* E4 5c

Rockfax Description
The lower arete is very bold requiring unprotected, rounded and scary laybacking. More like a sensible E1 5c with side-runners. © ROCKFAX

Chris lead up Apple Arete and I seconded this. Very sweaty conditions caused me to pop off high up but I didn't find it too hard. Tempted to lead it in good conditions.

On the shunt. Had a confidence issue trusting the shunt the first time as it got caught up but got it second go.

I seem to remember trying this ages ago and bailing off it into one of the nearby routes. No problems this time, started on the right, pulled round left to go for the break.

Unfortunately I placed side runners and one in the break effectively making this a top rope!. Did the lower moves without any gear. Loz thougt it was VS!!
