Rockfax Description
A worthwhile and pulse enhancing route making the most of the slabby wall left of The Arete. Start 2m left of The Arete.
1) 25m. Climb up and diagonally left without much gear to a gap in the bushes. Move left across and up a slab to a tree belay below a wide rounded runnel.
2) 4b, 26m. Take the smooth wide runnel onto the open smooth slab. Move up a thin, fading crack to its end and then up the bold slab to an easing. Continue up the steadier slab above to Lunchtime Ledge. © Rockfax

Tried to do this quickly in a single pitch to get to lunchtime ledge but it started raining hard as I got to the crux! The holds were soaked so I reversed most of the climb but had to lower off above the first slab. Quite a tricky descent! I hadn't put much gear in, so I ended up reverse leading, putting gear in by my feet, then taking the gear out from above me. That slab gets pretty slippery in the wet!

Lead second pitch, good fun and no harder than severe.

Fine up to the last few meters where I lost confidence in my footwork, smearing on the slab.

Long run out towards the end of the 2nd pitch on smears and small holds - very testing! Thankfully not too steep.

Moves up the slab much harder than VD / S - and the start is pretty bold!!

The runout on the slab was.. um... character building.

Lead first pitch, very easy climbing although with a bit of a run out at one point. Second pitch feels quite exposed at the top of the crack.

Easy first pitch, remeber to protect secound on easy traverse. Secound pitch has long runout that requires good early pro.
