Start up the arete then balance out right along the lip to a finger hold and friction up to the midway ledge. Finish easily. Not bad, at least on a top rope, and often green - care required. © ROCKFAX

Green and covered in lichen, made it a bit more interesting, but still only felt 5b, maybe try for a solo when it's in condition.

Had to try this, as it looked peasy from the ground... that will be because all the holds point down then. Still, great moves, one to aspire to without the rope.

great route, precarious. no mats just a spotter. feels easier than chalk storm but somehow more serious??

strange. the smears themselves are actually about 45 degrees, but somehow it's a bit spooky!
