The tall arete is photogenic and very good, if rather unbalanced. The last few moves make up the reach-dependent crux. © ROCKFAX

Good route. Take 2 long sling extenders for the bolts either side of the chert band at one third height to save your rope.

I think a hold has broken on the crux. Unless you have to dyno for the sidepull! We thought it more like a 7c crux!
