Rockfax Description
A fine intimidating line through the roof and up the soaring arete above. The starting roof is powerful, reachy and a bit bold to a rest ledge. Move right to the upper arete which is very exposed. © Rockfax

Spent some time clearing rhododendrons from the top of the route + a few on route last week then did moves in trainers. Bit easier in rock shoes. Very soft but great E3 (E2 then?) But care required at the start with the hollow rock.

Nice bold powerful start over roof, then well protected technical upper arete. Mega!
