Rockfax Description
16m. Start up Absent Friend (originally an easier start from the right was used) but traverse the upper break to the arete (thread). Climb it on the left then on the right to a break, runners and then easier climbing. The brilliant Direct Start - E8 7a follows shelving rock then pinch-grips the arete to reach the thread on the original. © Rockfax

Cool :) Hard and scary but not that hard and not that scary! Did toprope this route once, about a year ago and did it first go. Tricky move round to the tat then superb climbing up the arete and up the wall. Go do it!

This was a route that inspired/ Scared as a 10 year old. Felt so good to lead it comfortably. Shame about leaving a set of tricams at the base of the route.
