Rockfax Description
A popular climb starting just left of a well hole. Although the runout between the second and third bolt appears to be significant there are jugs all around. © Rockfax

Did the direct version using only the right side of the arete and only stepping right onto the big ledge once level with it. A hard undercling at the top. 6a+?

using the obvious line up the corner and right around the arete to bridge up to the big ledge. 5+?

Route following line with flake is not possible with very few handholds and loose rock. At the end its best to go right and stand of ledge directly below final clip.

Worrying run out between bolts 2 and 3, if you fell while clipping bolt 3 you'd be close to grounding out.

The Ivanator 15/Aug/10 Lead

Led with some pre-placed gear. Run out between bolts 2 and 3 is thought provoking and the moves are not as easy as the guidebook comment "there are jugs all around" would have you believe.

I was really pathetic on this. I went up the right instead of the left and ended up fiddling about. Pathetic effort. Less polished than the neighbouring 5+.

Nice route, may have gone to far right near the top, but don't think I impinged on Borra Ring.
