Rockfax Description
A long arete, well endowed with some good jugs leads to a ledge with two technical options above. The best is to use the flake on the right. © Rockfax

Peeled off just at the bulge about 2 clips below the crux. My hands were totally numb so didn't realise I'd fallen until I found myself sitting on the rope! Went left at the crux on good crimps.

Hard for the grade compared to the 6a next to it. Spicey top move. Not brilliantly bolted in the upper section. No bad climbing though. Missed a hold and had to rest once.

Found it hard to make the reach on the move to the ledge - felt nails for 6a but I think its a reachy move. There seems to be a short person sequence - but I was too tall for it! - excuses, excuses, excuses!

The last move to get established on the upper stance was good fun; feeling exposed with the beckoning ledge below. . . .
