The Mitre*** E3 6b
[Hands-off rest on the Mitre, 3 kb]18m.

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
