Skank Central* 6b+

Rockfax Description
The right-hand arete is tackled via a thin crack. A bit dirty low down, but better than it looks. The top crack and arete are exciting. Start up the right-hand side of the arete. © ROCKFAX

I did this thinking it was pregnant pause. I thought it was a bit hard for 6a+. Brilliant and memorable climb

lovely top 2/3rds make up for the loose-feeling start. Looks really unlikely for the grade! Fantastic moves up the crack and arete.

Dirty start with loose rock at the first 10m pulled around the arete onto the face. Really cool climbing but around 3/4 the way up face become very bare, felt well exposed. Managed to rest and pull back onto the arete to complete the climb.
