Good climbing. Easier than Angular Crack in current conditions (perhaps not if you don't find the hidden hold low down)

Despite the florescent green start it was actually quite good!

nice climb. HS in the new BMC guide is a bit harsh given how hard & unprotected the start is. Probably just worth the 2 stars it gets though.

nice route- made a trousers of start.Good gear in half way break-and then a small friend nearer the top.Top moves felt straightforward-easy 4c at best.

Chris Plewa - Lead O/S - Sep/08

Good gear half way up the arete, but it's below your feet at the hard bit. VS 4b probably describes it well (as per Eastern Grit) even though the crux is 4c!
