Rockfax Description
An enjoyable exercise that follows the thin crack and small corner/groove in the arete right of Ra. Start as for Ra.
Gain the first ledge on Ra and move right to, and climb a crack to the next break. Pull through the overhang into the small corner/groove from the left and finish up this. © Rockfax

Very good climb, suited to the indoor climber. Make sure you look around the arete at the overlap.

Almost didn't get on this as the day was wearing on but am glad I did. I would say benchmark E2 5b, with no real difficulties but sustained well protected climbing and ample pro. Well worth 2 stars imho.

Had a rest on the rope before getting the top crux! Great route that I would like to lead!

Quite straight forward other then the pumpy gear fiddling whilst standing on the break.
