Awesome route on some remarkably clean rock with good friction. Airy and exposed feeling, but never too hard. One of the best Lakes E1s??

Traverse left is bold! Superb route.

Awesome Got drawn in by the cracks of Close Shave after the crux. Felt a little silly for missing out the arete. Will go back. Ace crag.

It's quite hard to get gear in the overhang to protect the crux move and there's not much good gear below that. I sort of lobbed a wire in over my head.
Rachel Somerville - Lead O/S - 10/Jul/14 with Cal
The initial move up the crack and then moving left was the hardest bit for me. Eases after that. V enjoyable.

Superb climb, loved it, great position, great rock and great moves. Agree with comments below, more like an E1 5a with an HVS 5b crux, gear is spaced but holds keep appearing if you believe.....great fun and worth the slog up the hill....

The move to get up into the crack isn't easy, the next section (after a small cam) is a little bold and scary. Then some gear and some lovely delicate climbing with spaced gear and awesome moves.
A great route
