Rockfax Description
A wild route with great moves on big holds up the steep arete. Start just beyond the far end of the high ledges. Climb the steep buttress starting from the left. Watch out for a loose but avoidable block at the top. A better and more comfortable way of starting the route is to scramble or abseil directly to ledges at sea level. © Rockfax

Really nice route, my complete lack of stamina, having done nothing but bouldering all year, meant I pumped out and came off on the last move! What a setting!

OliverRoss 25/Aug/13 2nd dog

Really fun, in great position, super pumpy, did a route in itself getting to a belay below the climb not recommended

Really greasy (OK, full-on wet), but the holds are so massive it doesn't matter!
