Layback boldly up the flying arete. A runner in the next route is only of limited help, but it is all you are going to get unless you come when the snow is deep. © Rockfax

Matthew Ferrier 19 Feb, 2014 Lead β Abbed to place the side runner well and gave it a brush - ridiculously scrittly. Really cool. Hard moves are low but the final slap feels well bold.

jacobjlloyd 31 Mar, 2013 Sent β Snowball, decent enough platform so why not. Font 5+? Hard to believe this is ever E5 in any condition, but a fun bit of climbing. Have to put my money where my mouth is and come solo it when the snow's gone.
