Rockfax Description
The most testing of the four lines described on this section of the cliff. High in the grade. Start at the base of the easy-angled arete on the left side of the main slab.
Move up the arete for 5m and transfer to cracks in the slab on the right. Follow the right-trending cracks all the way to the top passing a very thin section at two-thirds height. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The far left, just r of the arete itself. Variations for the top; stay at the same angle or bear left on large hollow flakes.
