Amber ArÍte** VS 4c
[Nicola climbing with views towards Ogston Reservoir in the background and the ever-present rhododendrons in the foreground!, 4 kb]13m.

Rockfax Description
A 'near classic' up the arete. Climb steeply up the arete to a short slab and head warily up this - be aware of the possibility of dirt which has washed down from the ledge above. Finish as for the last route. © ROCKFAX

UKC Logbook Description
Amber quality. Balance your way up the arête to a delicate exit above the final break. The short arête above the ledge leads to the top.

The crux has obvious holds so won't get easier with practice. It is what it is. That's why I like it. Get it wrong and you're....

Terrifying! I've never come so close to falling off a route without actually falling off - a double dose of Elvis leg at the worst possible moment! Run out at the crux and very hard to read.
