Razor's Edge* HVS 5a
Start approx 10ft right of Yellow Wall. Climb the short slabby wall and traverse the break 20ft right to the crack running up the left of the arete - the direct start is tougher. Climb the crack to a good belay ledge at the top of the arete. 5a.
Climb up to an old peg and then cross left up an interesting slab before finishing up the groove. The top is steep and loose. 2 belay stakes set well back, one behind and to the right of the other. 5a

Good old Swanage flake cranking. Lower section well protected, but some of the holds look a bit suspect. Upper section loose in places.

Bottom section direct start is fine for a second, but not too nice for a lead. This goes for the bottom section of the crack as well. Great seated belay, and good climbing above - balancy rather than juggy. Nasty top out - loose and steep. 2 stakes, of which one is loose. :-)
