Rockfax Description
The central arete gives a fine route, climbed on its left-hand side throughout. A distant side-runner is often used at E5, though the upper section remains bold. © Rockfax

Awesome route, great crux sequence! One of the best e6's I've done for sure. Gear placed on lead. Extra E point for a post corp send?

First E6. First headpoint. Preplaced gear and no side runner. Probably soft. Lovely moves though.

One miss read move then had it second go. A superb sequence. Would be a very committing crux on lead, maybe 6a?

Had belayed Barrows on this last year. Got warmed up, did it and then got rained/hailed off. Brilliant route, really enjoyed it. Some quality arete thigh pinching after the crux stretch.
