Rockfax Description
Short in stature, but not in interest. Start at the base of the blunt arete with a heavily pock-marked right wall.
Pull up onto the ledge just left of the arete proper, and make some balancy moves up it to gain and climb a crack on its right-hand side to the top. © Rockfax

Solid pitch, lots of micro placements and balanced climbing.

Not very long lasting and not great gear it seems.

Not especially hard for VS, just an unusual style for Carn Barra. The gear's fine, steady VS.

Tough route! NOt ready to lead something like this! Shit gear too.

Lumbering Oaf 16/Sep/12 Lead dog

There is gear but it tends to be small stuff in the central section - not sure if I had strayed on to Cumbelloe or not.

An errant wave washed onto the ledge and resulted in wet ropes but we made it out alive. 1st climb of the day and it felt hard.

This was meant to be the warm up. 20 feet up with no gear and a fiddly placement above me I bailed.
