27m. This pleasant route roughly follows the arete right of First Blood. Climb an open groove on the right-hand side of the arete to a large loose-looking flake. Move up to a ledge on the arete and then climb the arete on its right-hand side, past good but widely spaced gear. From the break move left behind a large pinnacle, step up onto this and climb the corner on the left. © ROCKFAX

Straightforwards, with only one tricky section, although the fear isn't totally brilliant at that point. Very soft all the same.

a little bold but a long reach eases this dramatically, not too pumpy

Quite a bit of gear if you're cunning, though it is just below your feet on the crux. I would say slightly spaced rather than widely spaced. Pleasant climbing!

Nice route. Soft E1, very easy in lower half and one tricky move around marginal gear from the ledge. Very satisfying and enjoyable throughout. Non stressful considering surroundings and situation

Sat in a cave in torrential rain for about an hour before eventually going up this, hard without chalk and fairly damp. Direct loose finish also not recommended! Some good moves though....
Chad123 - AltLd O/S - 17/May/09 with Humble and Emily

Damp but positive start leading to the flake and ledge. Delicate moves with small crack gear to the break are the meat of the climb. First E1 this year, and a good one to choose
