Rockfax Description
The arete right of the corner is a brief, but excellent little climb. Move up the right-hand side of the arete - technical - to a small overhang, pull through this and climb a short wall to finish. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Central arete in the bower. Good balancey climbing up the central arete.

Backed off the first sequence once, sent second attempt. Delicate and a bit spooky before 2nd bolt, after that juggy. Funky variations possible on the features.

Nice balancy and blunt arete. Climb is more interesting if you eschew the easy holds on the right.
