[Combat 1, 3 kb]12m, 2 pitches. A brilliant and committing climb which really packs it in from the word go! Start 5m left of the arete of Combined Ops 1) 5c. Climb up the thin cracks to the base of a flake at 7m that leads right to the arete. A small wire can be placed blind in the flake before committing moves are made out to the arete of Combined Ops. (Note peg above flake can be clipped) Move up to the peg on Combined Ops just right of the arete and then up into the white notch. Move left and up the wide crack passing a thread with difficulty and then continue on better holds to a bolted belay. 2) 3c. Lower-off or continue up and left to the top of the crag. © ROCKFAX

checked the peg on abseil after an ascent 27/11/11; it is not reliable: bends and creaks alarmingly with significantly less than body weight (a good tug) Go carefully!
