Rockfax Description
A totally committing layback up the left side of the superb arete. Side-runners should be avoided at all costs. From the starting block, take a deep breath, and sprint for the midway break. Thankfully things are easier above. © Rockfax

George_Surf 29 Apr Lead O/S Saw this and couldn’t really walk away from that line! Im sure it feels ok if you understand grit; lack of routes = I’m not sure on the friction. Plus I was in a brand new pair of resoles. Pads can’t make this safer? Tried the start a few times, found the rounded bit 1/2 way up the crux, 3rd time I got on it, I passed this and was committed. Felt ok by then, but the fall would be nasty, and it was a relief to get to the break and relax. The line is perfect!
