10m. A serious lead up the delightful short arete, located just left of green onion - bold but good holds

Chris Dickinson 23/Oct Lead O/S

First two moves and last are more than 4b

used a foot ledge to the right for the crux, was the only way to make it vs 4b, the arÍte direct eliminate would be at least hvs 4c, maybe e1 5a. the top out is also pretty desperate above poor gear. NOTE...the crux jug is beginning to wobble!

Lots of sand everywhere. Builders have demolished parts of the quarry. Careful start, but hard middle part. Just go for it. Last part easy, but watch out for loose rocks.
