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.

Exciting to lead this, after seconding it on a previous trip and thinking how scary the first move is.

Once all the loose rocks have fallen off it will be better, but also probably a completely different climb.

Loose as hell. Ended up knocking off several large blocks so decided to bail before killing my belayer.

A nice easy climb but lots of loose stuff so more time was spent being careful not to dislodge rocks onto my belayer than climbing. The crystalline wall just to the left of the arete is well worth a look at.

This could be a good easy route but needs a LOT of cleaning. Thought it was a good lead by Neil considering the temporary nature of most of the holds!
