Rockfax Description
A stiff problem. Climb the face just right of the arete (poor cam) using tiny holds away on the right and a scary slap for the break. The upper part is easier though reachy. It is possible to climb left of the arete at about E2 (side-runner), but that just isn't the ticket! © Rockfax

Well good. Felt desperate until I found the crimpy sidepull. Thank god that break isn't slopey :) Sorry for taking forever Phil.

Messed around on the crimp too long and blew the onsight. The 'poor' cam held pretty well! Second go.

(Did the E2 version starting to the left of the arete). Adrian had lead it but didn't fancy belaying from the top, so I top roped to second it.
