The aręte left of Ventricle is impressive but has good holds and protection. Start as for Ventricle.
1. 20m 5a Climb the overhanging crack of Ventricle, then move left to below the groove of Open Heart (SMCJ 2006).
Continue easily left to a smaller groove (Ventriloquist).
2. 20m 5a Climb this groove for 5m, then make an impressive but easy traverse right to the upper section of Open
Heart’s groove. Climb this to the big sloping rock ledge. Move right to the aręte.
3. 35m 5a Step round the aręte into the left-hand of two shallow grooves (Ventricle climbs the right one). Climb this to
near its top, then step back on to the aręte. Climb immediately right of the aręte, then the aręte itself to a ledge. Make a
move up the wall 3m left of the aręte and traverse back to the aręte. Go up to a bulge again passed 3m on the left
