Not sure if it is due to the rock fall but the Arete, names and routes now are a bit of a mess. At left of the Arete there is a crack all the way up. That could be a trad route but it is not in UKC. In the whole wall you have a lot of dislodged rock that people mentioned before, then a bolt and then nothing else. I tried to do it but I confused it with the Arete (6c+) when it got complicated I moved left just to find loose rock and a bit higher one bolt. I clipped there, move higher and then I came back to the 6c+ because there was not more bolts to continue at the left of the Arete. I think only two routes should be defined here, there is not space for three (Non the Arete 6a, Almost the Arete 6c+, The Arete 7a+).

Dithered for 5 mins, getting scared, before committing to the flat holds of the crux around the arÍte. It was OK but I had one proper refusal first!

drgrange: that sounds quite unpleasant - I hope there's no lasting damage to Anna's hand. Hadn't realised it had had a rockfall so recently, or I would have steered clear. Removed most of the shattered rock that was piled up in the niche. Some of the rock at the top of the niche still looks unstable, and might even benefit from a couple of solid kicks to speed it on its way.
will_benfold - Lead O/S - 21/Mar/15 with Mike Morgan

A massive block about the size of a microwave came loose on this today and crushed Anna's hand. She had to use the other hand to try and lift it off. She was on lead. A very long and painful five minutes later (dangling by her hand) the whole thing comes crashing down. I wouldn't bother with this route for a while

Went right too early and ended up on the 7a... Which i fell off. found the correct route after that and finished. Didnt pull on gear or bolts, just the dunbass fall that ruined it. hopefully should redpoint it next time

A fun route which requires some delicate footwork. I climbed too high before crossing to the right side of the arete and had to rest on the rope.

Phil Murray - Lead rpt - 25/Jun/10 with Sam Bloor

Totally and utterly dogged my way up the 3rd and 4th clips and then finished on the route to the left (after about 15-30 minutes of faffing, climbing, downclimbing, umming and arrring). In the end I just couldnt make the move off the arete.

Lots of loose stuff at the start but the climbing gets good after that, especialy the move from the left side of the arete to the right.
the rec - TR rpt - 18/Jun/09 with Darrell

Hard work clipping the fourth bolt .. just hanging off a two finger and thumb jam in the crack for what seemed like ages. So had a rest after the clip and before moving off again.

Much, much easier moves onto the face if done at the correct point rather than too high as I'd done on the previous attempt.
