Rockfax Description
Up the thin crack, then access the awkward hanging arete above by a loop to the right. More like 5b if done direct. © ROCKFAX

Stepped right to gain the arete. Guide book shows left route, website says make a loop right? Rock under the arete is rotten. Not much scope for gear.

dunno about thin crack, easy to layback at the grade, though too wide for a fist jam! Plus, the route is a bit eliminate if you side step the bulge, or maybe I read it wrong!

i think i stepped back left to late, either that or its a mega eliminate, either way good climb gear somewhat suspect though

just couldn't work out the move onto the arete at all on lead. Finished up angle crack, then came back down and finally pulled onto the arete on TR - felt like a top end 5b move not a soft touch 5a! Edit: Ahh, looks like a step right is allowed, that probably helps a lot.

Still feels stupidly eliminate.

Not bad. A little bold.

Gettin up the arret is hard, flake isnt deep enough to get fingers in properly. Fell off twice but eventually managed it by getting my right foot high.

The difficulty of the top moves vary depending on how early you step left, but the gear below is a little hollow sounding, so it still feels necky even at HVS.
