Rockfax Description
Parallel jamming cracks splitting the centre of the slab can be gained directly, though a balancy ledge traverse from the right arete is also possible. Short, sweet and well protected. © Rockfax

Dad led this one and I followed after I eventually finished belaying everyone up Apples Arete! Flew up this no problems, all the holds there and not especially technical climbing aslong as you have climbing shoes on (a few edges come in useful) Took about 30 seconds! But fun! Worth doing whether it is going to be a challenge or not!
