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+?
MoWalker3 - TR β - 09/Jul/14

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

Dogged. Not sure about upper section.b Wanted to stray left like the route description ( Like rockfax picture ) but ran out of obvious holds for the grade.

Found this tricky, Found the top section hard to read. Was very greasy/soapy and not sure I was being too strict with the line but got it in the end.
charley - Lead RP - 14/Jun/14 with Mark, Ian

Think I have done this one before. In the sun difficult to read, felt hard.

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.

Horrible climb, polished and greasy (so now a sandbag), badly bolted and poor line. Apart from loose rock, what less could you ask for?

Worrying run out between bolts 2 and 3, if you fell while clipping bolt 3 you'd be close to grounding out.
MD - Lead dog - 19/Aug/10

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.

Really enjoyed this climb. Bit tricky at start as have to lean back off a small, sharp hold, then very little in the way of holds at the top.

Still can't figure out the section between the 3rd bolt and the lower off. Finished up Borra Ring but this doesn't seem right.
KarlH - Lead dog - 04/Jul/09 with Phil and Matt

Stepped right near the top. Think it's harder than 6a if you don't.

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+.
DeclanMurphy - Lead - 24/May/09 with Thomasina

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