Belladonna* E1 5c
[First ascent of Belladonna, Castle Naze,1977, 3 kb]12m. 12m. Devious though with some good moves and a certain logic to the line. Follow Primadonna up the right-hand side of the arete until forced out right below an overlap. Pull over this to reach a second overlap then trend back left (beware of a loose hold) to the upper arete and an exposed finish. © ROCKFAX

Did the crux then ended up crippled by rope drag on my right rope as it firmly jammed itself in the undercut flake making the pull round onto the face nearly impossible, once I dumped the rope things eased. Few!

Climbed to break, moved right as per instructions, but it all got a bit too bold. Down-climbed stripping gear.
