Rockfax Description
The flaky seams right of the arete give a fine balancy pitch with a rockover to reach the niche. Finish leftwards. © ROCKFAX

UKC Logbook Description
A splendid little climb. Move up to a thin blind flake on the wall right of the arête, trickily rockover to the right and climb up to gain the wedged block. Trend slightly left to finish near the arête.

Excellent, on good clean rock, could do with a few less holds near the top to push you left as it would be easy to to top out differently
