[Crux arete El Drak Font dAxia, 3 kb]24m. Perhaps the best route on the cliff. Start by a niche and trend slightly left to a potential lower-off after 12m (indifferent beginners route, 4+) then back right up the rib following pink spotted bolts. Step right into the groove, or finish direct up the face on good rock at 5+. © ROCKFAX

Great route, fairly graded, comfortable start followed by a few sustained moves on steep exposed ground, the route is varied and retains the interest the way.

certainly the best route we did here. Rib has great exposure but graded about right. There is a loose block to the right at top thou.

Bitten by Vlad! End of the day - I was knackered...could've done it without a rest...honest (The top gets quite steep) Didn't find the rib a problem.
