Rockfax Description
A neat little line with a couple of balancy moves. Start below a wide corner/groove 10m down the alternative easy way down.
Climb the corner to a ledge. Move up to a slab and step up onto it via a balancy move. Finish steeply up the arete. © Rockfax

Started on the arete to retrieve some gear, then popped over to the left to finish.

Simon Caldwell 05/Sep/14 Lead O/S

Good route. First section to the foot of the slab was HS 4a. Poorly protected 4b move onto and up the slab maybe verging on VS 4b? Nice exposed finish up the arete.

And Jane as Third. I really fancied this one for a lead. It's easy climbing, just the slab and the top out has less than ideal protection.
