Slow Strain >>
25m. The main arete on the left of the Pettifar's Wall slab. Entry kept for historical record and/or if climb is repaired. Climbing on trad in 2014 and upgraded accordingly. Mostly well-protected with good small wires and cams, including the low crux, but the finish to clip the chain is run-out and on slightly fragile rock.
