Rockfax Description
Photogenic. The ledge on the arete is gained awkwardly from the right, then make long reaches (5b for the short) to gain better holds higher up the arete. The upper section is more delicate. Escape right across the chimney or through the cave. © Rockfax

Seconding this clean when I was quite new to climbing outdoors two years ago gave me the confidence to just go for it today, but I imagine it would have been a very different story if it was onsight. Gaining the ledge is a great little puzzle and the moves above require full commitment. A few pleasing slab moves round off the climb. 3*

Big move up to the good holds, used the hold right up on the top of the break where you have gear, then a bit of a swing up and right to reach them. Luckily they are semi-decent! Mantle up onto these and finish easily, really nice one move wonder!

I found this difficult and sustained. Despite being 6'1", I felt that the crux is 5b. Great protection though. Amazing route. Mike lead it in storming style.
