A steep arete but at an amenable grade and with good protection - the crux is easiest on the left. Excellent and elegant climbing up a rather unlikely looking line for the grade. © Rockfax

poor rope management lead to massive drag after going round the arete - stopped me topping out (to the right, a high foot and undercut?) so had to downclimb and exit on the shelf right.

Wandered off onto the reach at the crux as I was on the wrong side and didn't feel too great about the possibility of falling off after seeing an accident earlier in the week! Going from the right definitely feels incredibly insecure.

Generaly a very nice climb. Should have done it clean, but I got very pumped trying unsucessfully to get Andrews cam out which had walked and become overcamed at the top of the flake on the right of the arete. I then tried going round the arete way too high and couldn't get my balance, eventually pumped out and fell. Seccond attempt i went roud the arette much lower which was definately easier (nice little dimple for left foot). I found the crux fine, just case of getting your hands in the right place before you make the reach (i undercut with my right instead of using the higher ledge).

djones66 29/Jun/13 Lead O/S

Excellent route. Interesting all the way. After getting the big break (above the crux) near the top, its jugs all the way (good thing too). I made a full-on jump and slap for the break at the 'long reach', being only 5ft 4". Seemed more likely to work than any other move I could think of - and it did. There are solid wires to protect whatever moves you choose there.

not so easy for the short people, (I'm giving beta so don't read if you want to onsight) I had to do a rockover over the overhang and use the sloppy arrete. not too hard, but took a long time to work out!

One very hard crux move that I didn't get. The rest of the climb is lovely

Good route but not as good as Neb Buttress. Needed a cheeky wee rest to extract a couple of horrendously bomber horizontal placements before the crux.

Sweet route. Sustains interest throughout. Same it goes so close to the gully, but who cares, the climbing is superb...

Couldn't work out where to go on the last section. Had to escape out to the left...

Luckily the crux moves were in the shade, unless you're tall you'll be using some slopers.

Got to the crux and jibbered for 15 minutes before giving up and escaping off left. A lot harder than I thought it would be and dropping my small nuts halfway up the route did nothing to help my head.
