Actually really good, did some fun kneebar shenanigans to gain the jug on the arete. Traverse is a nice test of open-hand strength.

This was one scary lead, hardly any gear and commiting climbing. Scarier than left wall next to it!!

Truly terrifying, the traverse with nothing to hold on to
GrahamHP - 2nd O/S - 04/Apr/10

Traditional Yorkshire Grit "HVS". It's been left at that grade because it probably doesn't get that many ascents, what with so many other fantastic easier mid-grade routes right next to it. My second gave me no end of grief. I led it on sight, having desired it as a project for ages, and I definitely was not happy when I met that arete.

More like E1 5b, the initial traverse is very slopy, the bulging arete is strenny
