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

Lovely little route at a great little venue! Solid, easy-to-place gear where you need it and a thought-provoking crux at 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....

The crux took a bit of thinking but felt steady once the correct foot holds were located.

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.
