Rockfax Description
A fantastic arete that looks to be much tougher than it actually is. Start below the soaring arete behind a huge pinnacle.
Climb the arete on small, but reliable holds to a good horizontal break at 8m. Continue up the arete past a notch to the top. An exposed pitch. © Rockfax

Lots of climbing for your money, little bit ropey moving from the comfort of the back wall onto the steep first section, after that it's golden.

Nice arete

Great route, run out in places but reasonably protected where it matters. Solid rock, VS 4b ** as per Rockfax probably about right.

Another one I was more happy to second I think!

Brilliant. Looks about E2 but has good holds and runners

Got the route description slightly wrong, and was a couple of meters to the right of the arete, but the climbing was still on the grade and very enjoyable.

Tricky moves, a weird line that wanders all over the place, wiggy rock and not entirely trustworthy gear - definitely not VS, 4b or the 2 stars given in the Rockfax guide!

Great route. Be gentle with the rock and it's ok.

Lovely climbing with good but quite spaced gear - especially in the lower section. Quite sustained (and on sound rock) I thought - until the easier top bit at least.

Nice enough route but very worrying rock. I was pulling it out all the way up.

thomasaneurinsmith 30/Jun/11 Lead O/S

Good fun, but a bit friable. I don't think the guidebook writers idea of 'solid rock' is quite the same as mine.
