Rockfax Description
The square-cut arete is climbed on its left side and becomes harrowing towards the top. Staying with the arete is best though trending left is an easier option. Escape right or do April Arete. © Rockfax

Teetered up this glad that it got easier as it went up. lunged for the jug (poor choice) grabbed it wrong (poor choice) but stuck it. Went up again to make it nicer

On the right all the way as thought that's what you do. Felt quite tough for E3 and 5c.
