Rockfax Description
Start as for the last route, but step right and access the arete from the ramp. The final precarious section is reachy and harrowing, especially for the short. Wires in the creaky flake really shouldn't be relied upon. © Rockfax

Droyd 25 Jul, 2016 Lead O/S Put a cam in Wall End Crack at the crux as it was so nearby and the gear wasn't hugely confidence-inspiring. Assume that this is what everyone who thinks that this is reasonable at E1 does, as the huge reach (admittedly fine, but from below impossible to tell that) and poor gear (wires in a deeply creaky flake below the feet) make it feel distinctly E2.

Si dH 19 Aug, 2006 Lead rpt Very height-dependent. At 5ft11 can just get the fingertips of one hand on the good hold at the crux while stood on the ledge below, but still need to use my feet and other hand quite a bit - I rekcon its about 5a like that, and worth E1 for the run-out, which is bigger than I'd remembered. For the short it mkust be significantly harder again I think, and in fact my second took 2 goes (hes shorter than me). But for anyone much taller than me (maybe 6ft1 or more) andable to get two hadns to the good hold from the ledge, it cant be more than 4c, and I expect the crux is then slightly lower down and the route not really E1. I reckon this is worth at least 2 stars as well, if not 3.
