[Simon Cox on Arabia, 2 kb]20m. The imposing rounded arete is low in the grade and excellent, though it may leave you dry mouthed and gasping. A crack and groove leads to the arete at half height. This gives sustained climbing (big Friends) to an exciting finish up the pocketed headwall © ROCKFAX

Have to agree with the new guide this isn't E3 but is steady E2 though probably still 5c. VS jamming until the traverse left, then with bomber cams lay back the arÍte (despite the good gear this feels a bit bold) then stroll up the juggy head wall. Stunning :)

Awesome - To say low in grade for E2 and 5b in BMC guide is a bit harsh. Thought pretty full on.
