Rockfax Description
The thin crack in the front of the buttress is awkward, then step left and layback the tricky and reachy arete to finish. © Rockfax

Out there, doing it. Started to sleet, hands so cold I couldn't feel them, couldn't tell if it was pump or just numb hands.Totally rad experience after 21 hours at work.

Had to escape left on first attempt as I couldn't feel my hands. Got it second go. Climbed it poorly, took a while.

Cool. Just as good as Auto da Fe, more continued interest.

so cold, the crack was pretty tough and it's not over at it's end - some technical moves up the arete as well!

Pleased to get up this - fall off near start but lower off and restart. Clair Wilson belays and seconds

Started as an optimistic attempt on Auto da Fe but soon floundered with multiple rests on the crack (annoyingly finally found a fairly straightforward sequence). Couldn't do the crux move on Auto da Fe so went for the Palm Charmer arete instead, which was very nice.

With intentions of doing 'Auto Da Fe' shattered because of a dirty, wet arete, palm chalmer seemed like the obvious choice. Crack is harder than i thought as its v. hard to jam it, also top move i found quite reachy and balancy.
