Cig-Arete** 7b

Rockfax Description
Technical contortions and powerful moves up the left wall/arete may lead you to the lower-off. The scene of much frustration but the sequence, when you have it, is reasonable. The route starts from the blocks on the left, stepping onto the right wall near the first bolt.

UKC Logbook Description
Climbing the right hand side of the arete (2 bolts) then either go left 1m from top or reach up direct if tall (F7b). Has been rebolted and a lower off exists.

Very short route with two hard rockovers and several horrible sharp holds. My friend slashed his finger open. Didn't rate it, but maybe just because I found it hard...

Hard to work out the moves initially, but its basically two hard rockover moves. First one easier than second. Will go quickly after a little practice.

First red point! Wouldn't have managed another try - that sharp bastard crimp cut my fingertips in half...
