Summit Arete** E2 6b
[StuartM on Summit Arete, Bosley Cloud, Staffordshire, 2 kb]2 pitches. The obvious hanging arete. A tricky V5 boulder problem start gives access to the easy blocky climbing above. The tall, or those with stacked mats, can reach in from the bank. Two alternative starts exist: (1) with a slappy jump from the pointy boulder down in front of the sit-start project; (2) straight from the bank (and a pad) for the jug, best hope you have grasshopper genes.

Big move off slopers followed by a finger lock and its all over. Sit start would be V-nice
