Rockfax Description
The right arete also has some lovely moves, the central crack helps with holds and maybe a runner too. © ROCKFAX

Tricky to protect - dodgy cams! Easier if tall but nice holds on the arÍte.

Spent quite a long time faffing with gear for what turned out to be one tricky move - but surely E1?

Straightforward but only 1 decent runner that is really too low plus one blown placement higher up
harold walmsley - Lead O/S - 10/Jul/10 with Colin Struthers

AlexRenshaw - Lead - 26/Apr/10 with Ted Lister, Thomas Renshaw

More like E1 but a one move wonder.
tigertim - Lead O/S - 23/Apr/10 with Steve Cousins

technical climbing with a lack of gear, felt bold and E1 as per BMC guide (harder and worse protection than the nearby Anniversary ArÍte). A nice route all the same
