Took a massive wipper off the nose of the arÍte. Still not made it to the top, will have to go back.

Absolutely brilliant route that deserves a lot more traffic than it gets. Steep and committing moves to get established under the roof crack, then a wild move out left using the foot pocket. Enjoyed every move. 3 stars from me!

As fun as it looks. Great if you like steep climbing. Interesting contortions and a seat halfway up.

Couldn't get the move across left to the block so took my first few lead falls then let it be.

As a warm up. Bloody awful. Green, awkward and horrible.
