12m. The fine arete is climbed mostly on its right-hand side via the shallow groove and some useful pockets. Protection is there, but it is hard to place. © ROCKFAX
Start left of Hatter's Groove by 2 pockets at head height. Climb to the groove where a high wire can be placed. Then use the groove and holds on the right to gain the break. A pocket is used to reach the top. Step right into Hatter's Groove.

Nez - 2014

Hard moves above the nut placements, might try the lead next time.

Hidden - Lead - 27/Oct/12

dominic lee - Lead O/S - 22/Sep/12 with nathan lee

Couldn't work out the first sequence so eventually shunted past to try the rest of the climb. Feels hard. The moves above are tricky but not too bad.
adamwesthead - TR dnf - 01/May/11

Had played on the start a couple of years ago.
Jack00 - Lead β - 25/Apr/11 with Si Bulmer

Couldn't get to the pockets at half hight, though Clive did with an amazing dyno from the tenuous crimp and pinch holds.
MikeLeeds - TR dnf - 19/Sep/10 with Clive Greenwood

After alot of falls before half height, but once made the pocket, found what the book calls the crux above, a lot easier to solve, although it is very pumpy and off balance.
