|Ten Minute Arete||VD|
|25m. A very pleasant route on mainly sound rock with good protection. On the left (north) side of the East End is a long, mostly scrappy area of cliff (which contains Pete's Wall). This route takes the prominent arete which forms the right end of the cliff, crystalline in its middle section, and bounded on its right by an earthy groove. The arete is not easily reached from Pete's Wall; it is better to access it from the Rob's Slab area. Start under the arete and make an energetic move onto the nose of the black slab; then follow the arete, very easily at first, then more airily on the crystalline section, before passing a bulge in the slab on the left. Finish just left of the top of the arete.
