Rockfax Description
The blunt arete has a bit of a bold start. Slippery moves gain the arete, then a detached block. Another tricky move gains the upper section which soon eases. © Rockfax

Nice route, but a very bold start and you get quite high before you rally feel safe. The slippery fod dont help. The i felt the technical crux was above the block. Some fine balance and delicate moves needed to prevent the barn-door.

Enjoyed a lot, mostly due to the committing start - which I almost avoided but a little planning and analysing of the route paid dividends. Once the good gear is in you can go for it and there are a couple of nice balancey and thoughtful moves before it gets too easy. Not exciting enough all the way for 3 stars, but close...
