Rockfax Description
An exciting climb with just enough protection. Climb The Asp to the good runners then make a difficult hand-traverse (easier for lanky types) to the arete, along a poor set of pockets. Continue boldly up the arete, past one good runner. The direct start, 6c, is an astounding leap with a high side runner. © Rockfax

βeta: This is definatly 6b and maybe soft E5. You'd come close to the ground if you fluffed the arete move. Great route though
