Perhaps too far left on the lower slab and did the upper arete on the left for safety. Even if I'd had a rack, I couldn't see much to protect climbing on the right with a very nasty fall.

Not too sure if I did the correct line on the rib, didn't feel that hard. Will have to have another look next time im there. The top arete on the other hand felt bold and tricky, especially in the wind. Was very happy to find the jug at the top.

lazyneil - 2nd - 19/Feb/09 with mark

I'm not sure where the line is on this. There are 2 blunt ribs here, one just left of the obvious line of flat pockets of Small Beer and another a metre or so to the left. Climbing the right one it would be very eliminate to avoid the Small Beer pockets and the left hand one felt pretty easy for 5a. It's also possible to climb the upper arete on the left hand side, though this looks less appealing.

Not the best route on the crag. A fairly easy start to 3.4, and then a short, but impossibly tough arete climb (harder than 5a) with no protection. Ultimately we move managed the last part on a top rope, but Claire bruised herself trying the lead - braver than I am.
