Rockfax Description
The right arete of the concave wall is tackled on its left side. This used to be a soft E4 but don't be fooled, there is still a hard move before the gear arrives. Finish on the right. © ROCKFAX

What was I thinking? First ever E4 attempt in direct sun on hottest October day on record. Got to crux OK but failed to even consider committing to it. Would be a good route to try with a massive snowdrift or a sea of pads.

Really enjoyable moves, I was scared without ever feeling like I was going to fall off. It was much more overhanging than it looked from the bottom! Felt more like soft E4 5c.
Andrew Barker - Lead O/S - 25/Sep/10 with Tom Lyons

Probably only E3 5c, but good route
