Rockfax Description
From the adjacent boulder, lean across to sloping edges and continue up the arete. Safer than it looks. Highline, V10 7C, keeps finger traversing along the edge into the finish of Big Air. © Rockfax

A couple of false starts stepping on and off again and then went. E4 6b is surely a joke and font 6c also seems ridiculous. Felt font 6a/+ at most. maybe harder for the short don't see how it would ever be more than 6b?

Snowball, so not extreme at all. Took a few goes to figure out how to get the feet right. Matt worked it out actually

V5 in the guide! Would have to agree. I found Crescent Arete Right Hand harder and more highball.

Snowballed. Really tenuous movement, must be well sketchy in normal conditions!

Jumped off a couple of times. steady away.

Not really an E4, more like a font 6C with a spooky landing. You'd have to be really unlucky to fall down the gap especially with a spotter. No snow or pads.

Pulled up and downa couple of times then got on it. Not to bad really, part of the circuit now.

never E4, even without pads you can hop back onto the boulder right up until you've finished rocking onto the slab.

Took a few goes pulling onto the starting holds before I stopped being a chicken and went for the sloper. No problems after that. A great little climb.
