Rockfax Description
Boldly climb the thin crack in the wall beneath the arete to reach a good crack in the narrow face of the arete. Follow this to a foot-ledge then move left to finish up the short wall. © Rockfax

Good moves on the bold & bouldery start. Quite dynamic for me (being of compact stature): pops off crimps & a high heel. Felt top end 5b. First route at the quarry - snatched before the rain caught us up.

Desperate bold start, not bad after the ledge is reached though.

Repeat climb but first attempt at lead. Nailed the tricky start and got to the last ledge but bottled the rockover onto the ledge itself and down climbed. Will be back.

Tricky start then some easier moves to make a very fingery finish. Couple of tricky gear placements high up.

Nice climb, pretty hard start but good ledges to place gear. there is one or two hard moves towards the top but otherwise its straightforward. Enjoyable lead though;-)

lead after top rope practice - a bit gutted as I topped it cleanly and gear placement wasn't an issue - crucial start section can be protected by a micro wire in the crack placed from ground level ! Hard fingery (painful) start to get on to the arete but fairly straight forward after.
