A committing and bold bit at the arete. Lots of climbing on this route with small gear

Great, some tricky hard to read moves. Gear is not too bad when you need it.
Mike-W-99 - Lead O/S - 15/Aug/15 with Fiona

Lovely with some bizarre moves. Just enough gear.
Fiona Reid - 2nd - 15/Aug/15 with Mike

Little bit sparse on the gear at the crux, probably won't deck if your belayer's heavy enough/ they jump backwards. Technically quite easy 5a crux but serious.

Our favourite route at the crag, lovely airy, juggy moves up a balancy arete. Grade is right but it's high in the grade and not obvious where the holds and gear are.....classic...

Interesting and different.
