Rockfax Description
A snaking line featuring exposed positions and very steep climbing. Start 2m right of the base of the arete.
Powerful moves on slopers, past a bolt, lead to an overhung niche on the arete. Pull directly out of the niche and climb past another bolt to beneath more steep ground. Traverse left to a spike on the arete. Continue up the arete before making a fingery move left to positive holds and a lower-off just above. © Rockfax

Hard. Starting moves, though powerful, are not 6b though.
