Rockfax Description
The square-cut arete requires stacks of commitment and technique. Each move is harder than the one before, all the way to the ledge! Almost always done above a stack of pads at f6C+ these days. It is a very different proposition without them! © Rockfax

AlexMorris 20 Oct, 2018 Solo dnf Pad party :) A few lobs from near the top trying a pretty naff sequence, got stood up on the final pebble on the last go of the day but panicked and jumped off, one to come back for. Sick pebble pulling and balancy moves.
