Rockfax Description
Varied and excellent. Climb the right arete, then the groove of the regular route followed by the flying arete above. Spectacular.

Popped a side runner in the VS to avoid death, then climbed the arete. Excellent route with three distinct sections.

Good climb, tried to stick to the arete low down but used the pocket for gear and a foothold... top roofy thing was brilliant - I hung around for ages so everyone could see what a hero I was;) Don't get how it's 1* on this though, i felt it was one of the best HVS's I'd done

Started up the center of the slab as the arete seemed both unprotectable and impossible at the grade. Whoever got "sinker jams" on the diagonal crack bit must have had tiny little hands as I found that section desperate. The top was magnificent and after about 5 peeps I launched over it with my heart racing. I didn't find the best holds but pressed on all the same, Wow! One of the scariest routes I've done yet!

Amazing climb! Possible one of the best HVS's I've ever done. Never desperate, but hard enough to keep you concentrating the whole way up. Varied climbing with a brilliant finish. some creative gear placements needed at some points.

Lowered off from the top of the slab due to numb hands. Went for a run to warm up then did it fine. Found bottom slab scary and hard to protect.

Pumpy, strenuous climb. Hard to get past sloping rock ledge, big jug at the top... if you can get to it... Must return for a lead.
