High Noon*** E4 6a
[Scared, pumped and gripped! Gus onsighting "High Noon" (E5 6a), Caley, 2 kb]

Rockfax Description
14m. The jutting axe-edged arete gives a great climb, bold and committing. From the good runners on Noonday Ridge move back right and, heart in mouth, layback and balance up the arete until jugs (or the air) offer some relief. High in the grade. © ROCKFAX

I stayed on the left side of the arrete at the top, and apparently the route goes right onto the slab..???!!! Felt hard and scary; wasn't sure i was going to make it... very glad i did. wouldn't like to have taken that lob!
