Rockfax Description
Although this route does have one independent section, most of the good climbing is on other routes with better lines. Starting just right of The Arrow, climb up steep juggy rock to a small ledge. Step up and make a hard fingery traverse rightwards to the arete. Pull around the corner into a crack (on the route Raw Recruits - next page) which is followed for 4m. Step back left into an easy finishing groove on the left-hand side of the arete. The crack of Raw Recruits can be avoided at no change in grade. © Rockfax

Good varied climbing, a block has fallen off the crux apparently making it harder. Gear was a pig to place after the runout.

Good, lineless climbing. Crux is round the arete with a still pull on a small spike. Traversed back around the arete too early and ended up making a scary reverse with rope wrapped around my leg.
