Rockfax Description
Climb the pocketed wall right of the arete then teeter up the steep slab directly above, making a worrying high step to reach a shallow groove. Mild for E2 but feels bold the first time. © Rockfax

Effectively top-roped, as my leader (Dan's friend Ed) got pumped on the first moves and used a slightly different route to the top. The crux came about half way up, and I had to really trust my feet whilst reaching for a positive crimp. I rate it better than its neighbour 'Millsoms Minion'.

Satisfying crux move on a fine route. (Had done this before, but started up Millsom's by mistake, thanks to not reading topo properly.) Felt like we had the whole Edge to ourselves, on a glorious Spring day, while - in a very surreal touch - the skirl of distant bagpipes kept drifting up to us on the breeze. Ah, the joys of retirement and midweek climbing!

Very soft for E2. The bold lower section is very reversible and the gear in the break is bomber (I got three solid cams in but probably could have placed more!) so the crux didn't feel bold at all. Worth seeking out and deserving of its stars but maybe only E1?

hmmm.. the bottom is steep but ok.. the top moves took a while to work out, there are a lot of possibilities but only one worked for me. Safe though could fall of crux and be ok i reckon.
