Rockfax Description
Well worth seeking out for the interesting geology. There is also a direct start, up the wall right of the arete, at about 7a. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Now reported to have lost a jug, much harder now or even maybe unclimbable.

Chose this climb for a warm up...well it definitely warmed us up. Difficult move from the flake up to the next hold, requiring way more strength than I had. Oh well onto the next.

After leading this the next to climb it pulled off a crucial jug. Does this make that mine a last ascent? Hopefully we can resin it back on

Enjoyed it. Lovely jugs at the start and then delicate stuff from the third clip up. Really enjoyed it!

Fell off at the bottom trying to keep on the bolt line on the arÍte. Turns out that way is nails. Sami showed me the proper line. Second go smashed it.
