Rockfax Description
Bolder and harder than the original, and with the same runners. The lower arete has a reachy sequence to the ledge, the upper section eases after initial tricky and precarious moves. © Rockfax

Great climbing; enjoyed it more than the eliminate, more delicate and less obvious what to do / go for.

Tried before but ended up doing straight and narrow. Almost dropped the move to the break too. Climbing pretty poorly recently. Oh well.

After bailing off last time onto the original, it was good to stick that high foot match! Tricky.

Not the smoothest ascent from myself but got there in the end. Easy to rush and get too stretched out, plus I hate laybacking!

got on some blokes top rope just to give the moves a try, cheap shoes screwed me up by making my smears insecure, so I fell off the lower crux, but was fine on the upper crux.

Nice climbing all the way up. I found the crux to be the second move past the ledge, not the one getting onto the ledge.

Comedy upside down fall off the tricky move on the upper arete, fairly safe as my head ended up at least 2 metres off the ground! Got it second go.
