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

Enjoyable, good protection.Felt possibly 4c but I have am tall.
No? Yes! - Lead - 12/Sep/15

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.

Super reachy crux if you're short, not close to 5a the way I did it. popping for the holds above off two pebbles on the left face. Loved it though.

Alan James - UKC and UKH - 2nd - 07/Jun/15 with Dominic Green

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).

joemallia - 2nd rpt - 05/Jul/13 with Mark Sinclair, Tim Rolfe

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!

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.

I found it *hard*, but stuck with it and made it. Very glad I did too, really nice route. - Lead O/S - 24/Aug/08 with jamesca

Sweet route. Sustains interest throughout. Same it goes so close to the gully, but who cares, the climbing is superb...
Hardonicus - Lead O/S - 20/Jul/08

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

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.
